Definitely easy and quick but I didn't find it to taste anything like a traditional hot fudge sauce. It was more like a pan of fudge that hadn't yet set. Not something I'd make again as-written. (I might try adding some raspberries to this batch to try to salvage it as a sauce.) Read More

I consider my self a Hot Fudge snob. I have tried every brand out there. My latest try was CC Brown's Hot Fudge Sauce it is really good. I've tried and experimented with lots of recipe's. This is by far the simplest and the creamiest. Some homemade sauces can turn out gritty. This one is the best!! I used Ghirardelli Chocolate chips and upped the butter to 4 T and added 2 dash's of salt (most recipes leave this out). It is thick creamy and very very good. I am done looking for the best recipe's this is it. So so easy. Read More

A very easy and testy recipe. I used high quality bittersweet chocolate chips and it was just right in terms of sweetness. Served this over homemade vanilla and mint oreo ice cream. Rave reviews from my tasters. Read More

I cannot believe how good and easy this was. It took minutes to make. The only change I made was to add a tiny bit of vanilla extract. I gave my dad a little bowl with this recipe and a little bowl of Smucker's (without telling him which was which) and he greatly and immediately preferred this one. I said "wow if I knew how easy this stuff was to make..."... And Daddy chimed in and said "You'd be 10 lbs heavier?" Read More

Very easy and delicious recipe! I've tried other more complicated recipes in the past but needed something quick for last minute ice cream sundaes. This went over very well with my guests and I will certainly be making it again. I did find with the recommended amount of semisweet chocolate it was a little too sweet and not quite chocolatey enough so I added some unsweetened cocoa powder to balance it out. I also found out with leftover fudge sauce it is great in coffee for a mocha treat. Read More

This is perfect if you make and chill then use in other recipes like putting a layer of the fudge between peanut butter cookie dough and baking as a bar. YUM!! Read More

Yummy and so easy! I found the consistency way too thick even with the butter and put about 3 tbsp. of half and half and it was much better. Still thick enough but not goopey. I made myself a banana split with it and topped it with dark chocolate salted almonds. Sinful! I will always be making hot fudge from now on. Read More
