Every time I have tried to make homemade hot fudge, I have been disappointed- until I tried this one. Oh. My. Goodness. I loved it. And to make it better, it's fudge and caramel together. It's like having Paul Simon by himself, which is wonderful, but adding the high pitched harmonies of Garfunkel makes the music better. Well, the addition of Garfunkel's poofy afro helps, too. Likewise, the addition of caramel makes this hot fudge gloriously wonderful.
