    1. I’ve never tried it Paulette, but if the fondue is on a very low heat, it may be ok. You’ll want to give it a stir every now and then and be sure it doesn’t get too hot. Let us know if you do try the fondue!

  1. I just made this and have to say its delish. I have a go to hot fudge and its thicker and ❤ it, this recipe is a bit thinner and so easy to make.

  2. My nephew is lactose intollerant he loves ice cream cake so i make it homemade for his birtbday every year. This year i was looking for a fudge sauce to cover it in. Would i be able to use a lactaid milk or cream instead of half nd half or regular cream? I know some things are harder to make with lactose free milks and creams and sometimes it does not even work when using lactose free.

    1. I have only made the recipe as written so I can’t say for sure. Let us know if you try it Katie!

    1. I haven’t tried it but if the slow cooker is on warm it should be ok. You’ll want to give it a stir every now and then and be sure it doesn’t get too hot.

  3. Follow up: served it last night with dessert and everyone loved it! I found my 8 year old son eating the leftovers with a spoon today!! :) The texture was so smooth. My dinner guests kept pouring more and more over their berries. I used Gheradelli semisweet chocolate chips 

  4. Just made it tonight! The texture is amazing, super smooth and glossy. Next time I may use slightly darker chocolate and maybe a dash of coffee to get the flavor a little deeper. Serving it tomorrow night with angel food cake and strawberries! Super, super easy. 

    1. Half and half is sold in North American grocery stores and contains half milk and half cream. A light cream (about 10-12% mf) should work fine in its place.

    1. Half and half is a mixture sold in most North American grocery store. It’s half milk and half cream. Light cream (10-12% mf) can be substituted if needed.

  5. I love this. I make a choclate sauce, but I just add a little bit of this, and a little bit of that. This is a good one with concrete measurements. :) I plan to share this. :)

  6. This is amazing! My boyfriend loves fudge and I’ve been wanting to make a homemade variety for him one of these days. Definitely will be trying this, thank you!

  7. I have a brownie recipe that calls for a can of Hershey’s chocolate sauce, do you think this would work? I think I’ll try it soon, I’ve got to get more half & half first.

    1. I think this is a little bit thicker than the Hershey’s chocolate sauce but I bet it would be amazing and fudgy… LOL. I might have to search for that recipe and try it out myself!!! Yum!

  8. Your recipes look too delicious! What is “half and half” please? I live in South Africa, and have no idea what it is!
    Many thanks
