Homemade Hot Fudge Sauce


Since I decided to make Crock Pot Brownies tonight, I thought that we ought to have some homemade hot fudge to go on top of our brownie sundaes! I LOVE Hot Fudge, and homemade hot fudge is EVEN BETTER than store-bought. My mom’s recipe is fabulous, and similar to this one, but I got one from, in a pinch. And of course, it’s less expensive!
