Does your ice cream need a little something extra?

I don’t know about you, but when the weather gets cold, I tend to ditch the usual ice cream and froyo and go for something like hot chocolate or apple cider. But occasionally, despite the cold weather, I just crave ice cream with some chocolate fudge drizzled over it. After all, what’s a better combination than hot and cold chocolate swirled together in one heavenly bite?

This delightful topping makes for a wonderful holiday gift or the perfect complement to peppermint ice cream.
