Questions & Replies

  1. Can this hot fudge sauce recipe be doubled?


  1. Finding this recipe was a huge mistake! I am so sorry I ever printed it out! My two youngest Dornettes had some friends over last night (Saturday night) for a movie, and I let them make this themselves while I went out powerwalking. By the time I got home, they had made 4 batches of the stuff, eaten it with ice cream, drizzled it over popcorn, spread it on cake and just ate it straight out of the bowl with their fingers. As I walked in the door two girls were trying to get the stuff out of their hair, one girl was squinting very unattractively since it had gotten into her eye, and a 4th girl was trying to quietly throw up in the bathroom. There was also a small chocolate puddle on the floor, but not for long, since the dog was working on that one. The tiny bit I actually got to taste (I think that was off the walls of the microwave itself) was wonderful, I can't wait to try this again, in polite society. Thanks, Barb, when are you coming over to help clean up my kitchen?
  2. I knew you wouldn't steer me wrong, Bloomers. This was soooo easy to make, we could hardly wait for it to be ready. Was the perfect topping for the Reese's Peanut Butter Cup icecream. Heck, it even made the spoon taste good!! Thanks for the tip!!
  3. This recipe is very good. Does anyone know if you can put this up in jars and seal with a hot water bath and not keep refrigerated? Would make a great gift if you could do this.
  4. Really good!! Wasn't sure how it would turn out but ending up being delicious! I made brownies ( and covered the entire pan of them with this sauce as they were cooling. I stuck a toothpick in everywhere so the sauce sunk down into the brownies. Sooo good! Beware though, they're super rich!
  5. You're right, IB...This stuff is to die for! Super-easy to put together, and so tasty on ice cream! DH said to tell you "It's wunnerful"! Thanks for sharing. Laudee


  1. Awesome recipe! I did use butter in place of margarine and anytime I'm making a chocolate recipe that calls for water I use coffee. This is the BEST for flavor and ease of preparation. Will never buy ready made chocolate sauce again.
  2. Used butter instead of margarine.
  3. This was fast and easy! Very good milk chocolatey flavor. I used this with the Copycat DQ Ice Cream Cake #163672. If I was going for a hot fudge sauce on plain vanilla ice cream, I would go for something a bit more chocolate flavored. This was very good though. I did use butter instead of margarine.
