Two-Minute Hot Fudge Topping - Dress up your Ice Cream!

My thermometer leisurely smiled at 100 degrees today, and I broke a sweat even thinking about turning on the oven.  Perfect time for a cool dessert.  But, I ask myself, how many times can I pull out the ice cream carton before it looks like I've stopped trying. . .

So--I reach in the bag of hot-weather tricks, and pull out a long-time classic:  Hot Fudge Topping.  Who doesn't have memories of spoonsful of rich, warm, gooey chocolate with cold, creamy ice cream.  Definitely a treat to savor.  And so easy to prepare--pantry staples and two minutes in the microwave.  Couldn't get easier!
