I love ice cream (I mean, who doesn’t?) but when it comes to eating it, I like it just the way it is. No need for special toppings or sauces. On the other hand, my husband and my kiddos are big fans of ice cream topped with Hot Fudge Sauce. Actually, if you asked my husband he’d say that on top wasn’t enough. He’d put it on the bottom of the ice cream and maybe even between scoops…You get the point.  Instead of buying Hot Fudge (already pre-made), what if you made your own? It is possible and is actually quite easy to do!
