Hot fudge, I thought I knew how good it was, until I made some homemade. Wow. It is so rich and chocolaty. So much better than the stuff out of the jar. I never realized how easy it was either! I made some for this icing and had plenty left over to enjoy over some Blue Bell Southern Blackberry Cobbler ice cream.
