    Not all that pleased with results. Too liquidy, more like chocolate milk. Chips did not melt completely. But mixes well in milk and tastes better than can syrups.

    Made this to pour over cream puffs for Easter everybody liked it. Husband said it was really good. I will never buy that store bought sauce again. It warms nicely in the microwave and no water added.

    I just finished making this fudge sauce, which I doubled because I needed a lot of servings. Since I had a 12 oz. bag of Dark Chocolate and Raspberry swirled chips, I used them and a bag of milk chocolate. It is delicious and very creamy. I am sure it will be enjoyed by all.

    Barbara Hacker from Lompoc, CA

    This is an excellent sauce, however some time ago I used to purchase Nestles Hot Fudge Sauce in 1 gal cans. It was more of a milk chocolate sauce. This sauce is more of a dark chocolate sauce. Do you have a recipe for a milk chocolate hot fudge sauce? Thank you,

    Patrice Smerdu from Carlsbad, CA

    This is a really easy and excellent sauce. Reheats well. A good addition is a couple of Tbl. dark brewed coffee.

    Hot Fudge Sauce

    Jane Laurence from STILLMAN VALLEY, IL

    Before I found this recipe, I used to try to melt milk chocolate chips and pour on ice cream, but it never really tasted like hot fudge. This recipe really tastes like the real thing.

    Hot Fudge Sauce

    Carolyn Bustamante from Pittsburg, CA

    This is a great fudge sauce to put on cake or ice cream. My family loves the rich flavor that comes from the Nestle' chocolate morsels and the vanilla flavoring. I would definitely make this homemade rather than purchase at the store. Since our family is an ice cream lover this sauce adds just the right topping for sundaes. Good for any dessert or just for a snack late at night.

    Tasty but a little disappointing

    Teri Reynolds from Centerton, AR

    This WAS exceedingly easy to make and tasted good, but I was a little disappointed. I guess my hopes were too high; I was craving some thick, gooey hot fudge sauce like what is served in ice cream shops. I'll probably make this again, but will continue my search for the perfect THICK hot fudge sauce.

    This sauce was a big hit on our homemade ice cream --- a creamy chocolate sauce that was fast and easy to make. The sauce also worked great drizzled on top of Angel food cake and brownies.

    Rich & Creamy Hot Fudge Sauce

    Theresa Romero from No. Valley Stream, NY

    I found this recipe not only very easy to make but absolutely delicious. I added 1 heaping teaspoon of Arrowroot to thicken the sauce, since I like it extra thick, and 4 ozs. of milk chocolate morsals for a sweeter taste. Everyone in my household loves it. I especially like to heat it before spooning it on ice cream.
