I admit, sharing this easy Homemade Hot Fudge sauce recipe is a gift to chocolate lovers everywhere.
Can you imagine receiving this as a gift “just because?” Oh my!!
To take it up even a notch further, add a touch of Kahlua for your adult gatherings. These are the kinds of sauces in which people pay gourmet speciality store prices, but when it’s homemade, we indulge for pennies on the dollar.
Trust me! With holidays right around the corner, this makes a perfect hostess gift. Who wouldn’t be delighted to receive this. I should have taken the time to drizzle this all pretty like, but I really just planned on eating it, not photographing it.
Halfway through, I knew I needed to share.
(Wait a minute, I thought cats were lactose intolerant? What’s with that? It’s just that good.)

I make my own chocolate syrup for chocolate milk and hot chocolate, but haven’t tried making hot fudge…yet! I think I will have to give it a try. It looks delicious! And you’re right. What chocolate lover (like myself) wouldn’t love this?
