Easy Sundae with Homemade Hot Fudge Recipe

Inspired by the hot fudge sundaes at Dairy Queen, this recipe makes the perfect summer treat! The homemade hot fudge is what really steals the show though. It’s thick and gooey but it firms up nicely on top of the cold ice cream.

How To Make Easy Sundae with Homemade Hot Fudge

  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 3 tbsp. butter (cut into pieces)

  3. Remove from heat before adding both chocolates and the vanilla.
  4. Stir until all the chocolate has melted and the hot fudge comes together.
  5. Cool for 15 minutes.
