Sauce: Ridiculous Hot Fudge Sauce
Source of Recipe
From "The Cookies and Cups Cookbook" by Shelly Jaronsky
"Hot fudge sauce is truly nostalgic for me. It brings back lots of childhood memories of ice cream sundae desserts made with my parents and grandparents. We even had a dog named Fudge, appropriately named for our favorite ice cream topping. I'm serious. Usually we just grabbed a jar of ready-made fudge topping from the refrigerator and heated it up in the microwave to top our vanilla sundaes, but every once in a while my grandma would make a special homemade hot fudge that could *not* be beat. This is one of the recipes I got from her recipe box. It's rich, chocolatey, and simple, and you're going to love it!"
