- This is a phenomenal semi-sweet chocolate hot fudge recipe. If you’d like it to be closer to a milk chocolate flavor, you can use semi-sweet or even milk chocolate in place of the unsweetened baking chocolate.
- Be sure to keep the stove temperature at medium and lower it if it starts sticking to the bottom of the pan. You don’t want to scorch your chocolate, so keep an on it it and adjust the temperature as needed.
- This is splendid over ice cream and is also great over angel food cake with berries.
