Hot Fudge Sauce Recipe FAQs
Does Hot Fudge Need to be Refrigerated?
Yes! Store homemade Hot Fudge in a lidded glass jar in the fridge for up to 2 weeks. (It will possibly stay good for longer, but I don't know because mine is always gone before then!)
To reheat Hot Fudge, spoon the amount desired into a microwave safe bowl and heat for 15 seconds. Stir, and then heat for an additional 10 seconds if needed. Or reheat in a small saucepan over medium-low heat, stirring constantly.
How Do You Keep Hot Fudge Sauce Warm?
There are a few different ways you can easily keep Hot Fudge Sauce warm:
- Put it in a small slow cooker on LOW, and stir it occasionally.
- Add it to a double boiler over very low heat, and stir it occasionally.
Does Hot Fudge Sauce Go Bad?
Yes, Hot Fudge sauce can eventually go bad. When a pool of liquid forms at the top it means it's starting to go.
To help extend the shelf life as much as possible, store it in a lidded glass jar in the fridge.
I find that if stored properly, this Hot Fudge Sauce is good for at least 2 weeks in the fridge (possibly longer, but it was eaten by the 2 week mark!).
