Hot Fudge Sauce

Rich And Creamy Hot Fudge Sauce

This hot fudge sauce is too good and too easy not to make. It’s rich, thick, and just slightly sweet. I use it on ice cream, pancakes, waffles, cookies, or just eat all of it with a spoon. It’s that good.

The cocoa powder adds a rich flavor and slight bitterness, so if you prefer a sweet sauce, you can skip it.
