Hot Fudge Sauce Saves The Day

We were just enjoying a quiet afternoon when out of the blue we got a hankering for something chocolate-y. A quick rustle through the cupboard came up empty. And, the freezer held no left-over-from-summer chocolate dipped ice cream bars either.

So I grabbed a small handful of shelled pecans, thinking that might curb the urge, and returned to my lounging position in our sunny bedroom where I'd been reading A Light in the Window by Jan Karon.

You probably won't be surprised to learn pecans in that unadorned state did not curb anything. You probably won't be surprised either to learn that we flung back the cozy cover, laid down the book, and went in search of the easy Hot Fudge Sauce recipe a friend gave me years ago.

Five or six minutes later I had vanilla yogurt ice cream scooped into a bowl... poured some hot fudge sauce over top... added a sprinkling of pecans... and grabbed a spoon.  Ahhhhh... much better!

An already lovely day now made completely perfect,




  1. Brenda, I have so often done exactly the same thing!
    I love the Jan Karon books too.

  2. Sometimes a gal just has to have something good! This looks perfect! Thanks for the recipe...

  3. That chocolate sure does add a nice finishing touch!

  4. I have a hankering for Hot fudge sauce....and I've nothing to put it on? I suppose it would be wrong to make it and just eat it with a spoon..... :-)
    Going to try the recipe!

    1. Debi, I've eaten it that way too.... it is yummy, although I find it awfully sweet so it's a small spoonful!

  5. Sweet post! Lol
    And, I will try that recipe. Thank you.
