Quick Hot Fudge Sauce

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by newspapergal

My mom used to make this when I was a kid. Last week, DH had eaten all the Magic Shell ( :) ) so I whipped out my cookbook & whipped this up -- it's just as I remembered! Quick, and with such a good flavor. While it's hot, it's kind of thin, like Hershey's syrup consistency-wise, but I like it best cold out of the fridge -- it's thick and pours sloooowly over the ice cream (or cake or whatever). Yum!

This is THEE BEST fudge sauce I've ever had. Was a huge hit at my DD's 4th b-day party. Five Stars all the way! I have made this again and again, its wonderful everytime. To the person who said that it was too runny....you must have done something wrong. I've never had it turn out less than perfect. My kids even love making chocolate milk with it! AWESOME recipe!!
