You're less than half an hour from start to sundae with this Homemade Hot Fudge Sauce recipe. It's rich and gooey and free of high fructose corn syrup.

It’s been years since I’ve had a hot fudge sundae. Two? Three years? It likely came in a waxed cardboard cup from Baskin-Robbins.

Inexplicably, the other night I was craving one. Time for some homemade hot fudge sauce!

This homemade hot fudge sauce certainly doesn’t qualify as healthy, but it means you can indulge without resorting to the store-bought, high fructose corn syrup versions.

It’s not hard to make and I suspect you’ll find the flavor to be superior to that of the jars you’d get at the store.
