Homemade Hot Fudge Sauce Recipes and Chocolate Sauce Recipe

I ask you, is there anything better than a hot fudge sundae on a hot summer day? Well there is — a brownie hot fudge sundae! :) Ice cream, chocolate and brownies. They’re simple, easy and one of the best loved desserts any time.

P.S. Don’t forget the nuts and whipped cream!


  • Sprinkle the crumbs from a bag of pretzels on your ice cream rather than using nuts for something different.
  • Serve your hot fudge sauce in a gravy boat or a small pitcher.
  • Chocolate sauce isn’t just for ice cream. Try using chocolate sauce drizzled over cheesecake, strawberries, strawberry  or chocolate pie or cake. Ahhhh!!! Let me see… Is there anything that you can’t drizzle chocolate sauce over that the chocolate sauce doesn’t make even better?? :)
