Brownie sundaes are the perfect special occasion dessert. Although I prefer homemade chocolate brownies for this recipe, you can certainly use store-bought brownies in a pinch. But don't use a store-bought sauce. The recipe below is decadent and delicious, and the hot fudge sauce really makes it fantastic.

Awsome, Member mario4drugs

Thanks this helped me create the best sundae ever, I made the chocolate sauce and it was fantastic. Like rachel ray says, ""yummo""! I did add some things, I didn't change a thing, but I did add some sightly melted chocolate chips on top, served in a wine glass cup. I took away the ordinary strawberries and topped it with some chocolate ones. I used melted chocolate from a random chocolate bar I had and luckily it harden, this of course was made a few hours before the sundae. sorry if I wrote to much and wasted your time, to who evers reading this, but I highly reccomend that you take this recipe and go to the store at this very instant you are reading my way to long review, thats a waste of my time and yours, well anyways I think that this deserves a five star rating because homade chocolate sauce it so much better, also I would go for the homade brownies as well. This was awsome, one word that could have sum up this whole review, but oh well, bye, to the person who is reading this!
