I have a recipe in my back pocket for 30 years, easily. I can make this in my sleep, sometimes with peanut butter, sometimes without. Nothing else changes, either add it or don't.
It's quick, delicious, rich, thick and you will absolutely love it, I promise. It tastes like real hot fudge, yeah, it's my party trick piece. I wasn't going to share it but I have to, you're welcome :D
