I made this sauce for an ice cream social I hosted at work today, to celebrate the end of a project. I bought Häagen Dazs ice cream, mini M&Ms and chocolate chips, assorted sprinkles, extra creamy whipped cream, bananas, nuts and caramel and strawberry sauces. I put my hot fudge sauce in a mini-crock to keep it warm, and it was a big hit. It was excellent. The recipe says to use good quality chocolate – several people commented, asking if it was Scharffenberger – it was, but only partially. I used a bar and a half of Scharffenberger, some fancy chocolate chunks, and Nestlé chocolate chips. It was really easy to make, and it made a lot. The Cinnamon Hot Fudge Sauce variation sounds really good too.
