Quick and Easy Fudge Sauce

Truth be told, ice cream doesn't make its way into my house all that much these days.  Why, you ask?   Well, friends, when ice cream is in my freezer it has a nasty way of calling to me...letting me know it is in there...waiting...

Oh, yes, I do love ice cream.  Occasionally, I'll break down and buy some ice cream.  I did just that a week, or so, ago and it sat for a day or two in the freezer, just waiting for a crack in my resolute armor.  The crack surfaced one hot evening.  Did I mention it was chocolate peanut butter ice cream?  Who can resist that, I ask you?

"Hubby, would you like a dish of ice cream?" 

"We have ice cream?"

"Would you like hot fudge sauce?"

"We have hot fudge sauce?"

We didn't have any hot fudge sauce, but I had the ingredients to make some.  It is so quick and easy to make a delicious fudge sauce, there really is no reason to buy the jarred kind.

Quick and Easy Fudge Sauce

  • 1 cup chocolate chips (I used half semi-sweet and half double chocolate)
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Heat the cream and the chocolate chips together in a small sauce pan over medium heat until the chocolate chips melt.  Stir well to be sure the chunks are dissolved and the mixture is smooth.

Heat the Cream and Chocolate Chips

Remove the pan from the heat and cool for 5 to 10 minutes.  Add the vanilla, stirring to combine. 
Serve over your favorite ice cream.  Refrigerate extra fudge sauce to use within a week.

Yes, we had fudge sauce...
...and you can, too.
