Ooey Gooey Hot Fudge Sauce

Jump to Recipe · Rate This Recipe

Warm, chocolately fudge sauce perfect for topping smearing or drizzling on any of your favorite desserts.

Remember how I said even though I’ve developed a fondness of fruity desserts, I still completely adore chocolate?


That’s pretty much all that needs to be said.

One can never have too much hot fudge sauce, right?

I mean,  you can just keep piling it on that bowl of ice cream and there never comes a point where I think, woah, slow down…


Just keep it comin…

I could probably put hot fudge sauce on just about anything but my very favorite is a big fat bowl of cold hard ice cream.

There is just something about that hot-cold combo that just gets me. I’m big fan of pairing opposites when it comes to flavors and foods. Like salty-sweet, and hot-sour, and creamy-crunchy.

Whenever I have hot fudge sauce these days I get some freshman-year nostalgia. When I would shamelessly pile hot fudge sauce on top of my BYU Creamery chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream.

If you haven’t had BYU Creamery ice cream, you are seriously missing out and need to but it on your culinary bucket list.

Its freaking fantastic.

Annnnnnd now I’m craving it really really badly.

Good thing it’s only an hour away from me! Do you think I could get it home before it melts??

Ah! An cooler! I’m totally packing one with ice and making the trip.

So worth it. And this time around I’m drowning it in my hot fudge sauce!

Just a little disclaimer: this stuff is RICH and ooey gooey messy wonderful. Just a heads up!

*Oh, and keep an eye out, I’ve got some super tasty recipes to pair with this amazing hot fudge sauce coming up for you in the next few days that will blow your mind!!
