    I'd made this recipe 6/22/2019. I'd used 7 Tbsp. of half and half cream. This was an easy recipe to prepare and it was delicious!

    It got mixed reviews from my family. Some said it was on the bitter side. I added more sweetener and then they agreed it was good. I probably won't make it again.

    I have made this hot fudge sauce a couple times now. It stays soft in the fridge and doesn't get grainy like other hot fudge recipes do. It has a very semi-sweet taste, the next time I make this I will try it with milk chocolate chips.
