Hot Chocolate Fudge Sauce

When I saw the secret ingredient for this month Chocolate Party is ice cream I thought instantly to hot chocolate fudge sauce.
What else is better to pair ice cream with. No matter the ice cream, this rich and smooth hot chocolate fudge sauce is a great addition to create a memorable dessert.
It is very easy to prepare, takes only few minutes and you got the most tempting chocolate sauce that you can serve it as it is, pour it over ice cream or over some buttery biscuits … just heavenly.
This one is classic with just a hint of vanilla but you can change the flavors upon your tastes,  add some almond extract, peppermint or citrus flavor.
For this recipe I used homemade vanilla ice cream, but you can definitely try as many ice cream variation you can get. So let’s enjoy this summer my friends!

    Hi Elle,
    I love hot fudge sauce and your photos make my mouth water! Just perfect with a couple of scoops of vanilla ice-cream.
    I have a small request, could you please add the ice-cream to the ingredients list, otherwise I’ll have to delete the link from the party. We are supposed to use both chocolate and ice-cream in our recipe.

      Yes, will do that today, thanks for noticing me.

  5. Liz Author says:

    We were both on the same wavelength this month. My family would love if I made your recipes next…it’s been perfect chocolate sundae weather!

  6. Thomas Author says:

    Could we heat this sauce continuously to serve hot over frozen vanilla ice-cream ? For instance at a party that’s over 2 hours – can hot chocolate be heated on a Electric Stove to keep it warm throughout.

    Please help.

      Maybe a double boiler will be just enough to keep it warm.. that is probably what I would do
