Decadent Hot Fudge Sauce: the best chocolate sauce I have ever had.

 Fittingly, this Decadent Hot Fudge Sauce is seen here topping the best Ice Cream I have ever had in my life: Goat Cheese Ice Cream with Boozy Cherries. 

Now, really, I just don’t know how to sing the excellencies of this concoction, this Decadent Hot Fudge Sauce,  highly enough.

All I can say is: share it with someone you love. Because it COULD turn out to be *your* Love Potion #9. It made MY knees go weak!

On the other hand, in the (slightly altered for this occasion) words of our friend Steve, “When it comes to hot fudge sauce, ‘What friends? I have no friends.’ ”

Oh, for a thousand tongues with which to taste this lovely hot fudge sauce….

Perfect for pinning to Pinterest, this recipe for Decadent Hot Fudge Sauce is a recipe you will want to repeat, year after year.

Susan’s note: This is a very deep, dark, intense hot fudge sauce. I use Bittersweet Ghirardelli bars, which are 60% cacao. 

I recommend you serve this atop my Goat Cheese Ice Cream with Boozy Cherries, which is the best ice cream I’ve ever had, in my life.

Prepare to faint with delight.

I serve this as dessert on Christmas Day.

    My trousers got tighter just from me reading that recipe.

    Maybe I should make a batch to check if it would happen in real life. Thankfully my sweetie loves dark chocolate so will help me out 🙂

  2. Looks delicious! I can’t wait to give this one a try. I’ve got the peri-menopausal chocolate cravings once again.

  3. I’ve got a batch cooling right now!
