Creamy, thick, rich, and chocolatey hot fudge is a dream (and often a “must have in the house at all times” requirement) for any ice cream lover! 

2 Ingredient Hot Fudge Sauce

I have a well-known love for ice cream and while I rarely turn down a scoop in a cone, I can’t resist a fancy ice cream sundae whenever I have the chance to make one.

This weekend, I had a blast playing with several new brownie recipes and this hot fudge sauce was worthy of each one.

Brownie Hot Fudge Sundaes

My favorite combination was the Almond Joy Brownies topped with a scoop of Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream and then generously drizzled with this Hot Fudge Sauce.

Years ago, my sister worked as a waitress at Christy Mae’s restaurant in Albuquerque, NM. Known for serving the best comfort food in the area, they also made a brownie sundae that my friends and I could never resist.

Their hot fudge sundae became a favorite indulgence among our circle and recreating it at home is one of my favorite desserts.

Hot Fudge Sauce is the perfect topping for a Brownie Sundae

This hot fudge sauce is perfect for serving warm, right off the stove. Because it only takes a few minutes to make, I like to make it right before I’m ready to make ice cream sundaes.

If you set the ice cream on the counter when you start this sauce, it will be soft enough to scoop when the sauce finishes and you’ll be ready to assemble your sundaes in no time at all.

Easy Hot Fudge Sauce Recipe

  1. Combine the chocolate chips and the sweetened condensed milk in a small saucepan over medium heat.
  2. Whisk or stir constantly until the chocolate has melted and the ingredients have combined smoothly, about 3-5 minutes.
  3. Add extract if desired and stir to combine. Serve warm.
  4. The sauce should be quite thick and will very slowly pour off a spoon. Transfer any remaining sauce to an airtight container and refrigerate.

How To Reheat Hot Fudge Sauce

The hot fudge will firm up as it cools. Reheat it in the microwave (at half power!) stirring frequently, until the sauce is smooth and stirrable once again.
