Homemade Hot Fudge Sauce

When I was a little girl there was a Woolworths store in the next town north of where we lived.  Inside the Woolworth’ store was a lunch counter.  I can’t remember if they served food, but they did serve hot fudge sundaes. We rarely went to the Woolworth’s store but one day for some reason my mom and I went and had hot fudge sundaes.  That sundae was so good that I still remember it today, some 30 years later. I’ve never had hot fudge sauce quite as good as Woolworths.

Until now.  This hot fudge took me right back to that Woolworth sundae. When I made this last summer, everyone in my family agreed that this is the best hot fudge sauce we’d ever had.  And it took about 10 minutes to make. I used high quality, 70% cacao Sharfen Berger dark chocolate and I’m pretty sure that’s what took this sauce over the top. But I think you could use semi-sweet chocolate chips and get a very good sauce.

    I grew up in North Carolina (I now live in Mi…20 years later :o)

    My mom used to take us to town once a month to shop. The biggest treat of the day was a stop at Wolworths! Yep…lunch counter and all! My all time favorite…grilled cheese (i would watch as the waitress put the bread through a pasta looking machine to butter both sides evenly) and for desert…hot fudge sundae:) Loving the memory this recipe brought back! God bless you!

      That’s so fun! I wish Woolworth’s was still around. I’ll work on replicating that butter machine! LOL
