Some things are perfect, just the way they are. Take my favorite all time ice cream topper hot fudge for instance. Perfect. I like mine dark, thick and homemade. I a snob here. The store bought stuff just doesn’t cut it for me.
I have a go-to recipe that I use (below) and from time to time I will add a bit of espresso powder for a little depth. Until a few months I would not have bought pre-made sauce when it is so easy and quick to make my own. Then I went to the Indiana Artisan Festival and fell in love with Best Boy & Co Gourmet Natural Foods.
I went on and on at the show about how much I loved their mocha hot fudge that they sent me a pack of sauces to try. I was thrilled!! I can’t wait to dig in to them and I wanted to share this company with you. You can order from them online AND 100% of their profits go to 501(c)3 charities like Doctors Without Borders for example. Now I am really in love ????

It was good timing too because I had already put together a post for my hot fudge sauce so I decided to tack this on so you all could show them some love. Visit them on Facebook HERE
