If you don’t like chocolate please leave right now. You are in the wrong place and I can’t help you at all. If you love, adore, and must have the Most Amazing Chocolate Recipes Ever Created you have found your home. Welcome, friends!

My mother once belonged to a club dedicated to the eradication of chocolate from this earth one piece at a time. I am absolutely my mother’s daughter. As a dedicated chocolate lover I have always made great chocolate desserts, but this time I have truly outdone myself.

I challenge that you do not know what Hot Fudge Sauce is until you try this recipe. It is rich and chocolaty, creamy and velvety, and dare I say sinfully perfect? Trust me on the brown sugar and salt. I know it sounds crazy but they add a little something magic that other sauces are missing.

This might be the recipe that undoes every effort I have made towards healthy pregnancy eating, as well as the recipe that makes me not really care at all!

Use it to smother your ice cream. Serve it warm over pound cake with whipped cream. Drown your store-bought cheesecake in it. Use it as a dip for chocolate chip cookies. Just don’t blame me when you become the most popular person in the neighborhood and people start bribing you to bring over a fresh batch. I warned you…

    • Thank you! The jar and spoon idea really is right on the mark. I confess I have trouble getting it from pan to jar before I’m digging in…

  1. Hubby is a chocoholic, so will set up an IV of this for him! Really am replying to you due to your kind, sweet, articulate, and real words you share. Am officially a blogger stalker. Follow at least 100.Printed out 10 categorized binders of recipes, since first discovering food blogs, in March, when recovering from yet another major surgery. Have wanted to write a book for years, and now interested in starting a blog. (ADHD at 54!).Anyway, you made me smile today, after a weary stressful weekend with a very rebellious 17 year old daughter. Was very I’ll and bedridden for many years, then moved from Wisconsin to Arizona. Not been out enough to make friends here, yet agree that people contact is a good thing. Blessings to you and your fam! What a sweetie you are!

    • Wow, Teri, thank you for your kind words! I’m so sorry for all the health challenges you have been through. I have spent months at a time bedridden and in a wheelchair. I understand how very hard that can be and what it takes to overcome and thrive afterwords! It always does take time after a move your tribe of people and connect. Hang in there – when you find them it will be worth the wait! I love having a food blog and think it is wonderful when people want to start one but it is a huge time commitment, depending on what you want to do! I spent 60-100 hours a week on the web page for a lot of the first year and we have invested quite a bit of money into camera equipment and web development / hosting. I would never discourage you from starting one, but instead encourage you to think about what you want and do plenty of research to figure out what the process will look like! Good luck!!!

  2. Have you tried canning this? Any instructions for that? If not, how long would this keep in a jar on the shelf? in fridge? Assuming of course that it is under lock and key by someone other than me.

    • Haha. I have never tried canning it. I don’t think it would work well. I keep mine in the fridge for a few weeks or I freeze it for a few months. It does not keep well at room temperature but when I want to serve the refrigerated sauce I just put some in a bowl and microwave it 20 seconds at a time until it is nice and runny. I also eat it by the spoon right out of the fridge kind of like truffle filling. Which reminds me I have a dish of sauce in the fridge right now. Guess what I’m going to go do???
