I will never buy hot fudge again. This is so quick & easy, why would I? I made this for a sundae bar at a graduation party. I don't usually even like hot fudge but this was so good, I found myself dipping pretzels, strawberries, & bananas in the leftovers:)

This was amazingly delicious! The only change I made was to cook it a bit thicker than I wanted then stir in some half and half at the very end to thin it out a bit. We all fought over licking the bowl!

5 stars for taste! I had a hard time getting mine to thicken, though. I may try it on the stove top next time. Thanks!
