This Wicked Fudge Sauce is an amazing rich dark hot fudge sauce that takes just 5 minutes to make!  It has to be one of the quickest and easiest sauces yet it’s smooth and rich!  Served warm or cooled, it’s the perfect topping for cake or ice cream…  But really, I just want to eat it with a spoon.  This is just wicked good.  Really.

    1. Dairy doesn’t usually freeze well, this recipe can be stored in the fridge for up to ten days or it can be cut in half to make a smaller batch.

  1. Chocolate doesn’t melt completely resting had to use low heat while whisking. Sauce needed a pinch of salt.3 stars

  2. Everyone seems ro love this recipe for fudge sauce. My grandson’s favorite dessert is chocolate peanut butter pie. you think it would work to swirl the fudge in the pie?

  3. I’m not a fan of using the word wicked, so let me say this chocolate sauce is really terrific! I made it with Lactaid 2% milk as I’m lactose sensitive. Having never made it before I have nothing to compare the consistency to, but the flavor is wonderful! I look forward to seeing what it’s like tomorrow and making it again!5 stars

    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!

  4. 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.

  5. 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!
