It’s Friday night and each of my girls has a friend over for the evening.
Which means I need a dessert.
The hubby voted for cookie monsters so cookie monsters it is. Since he was the lone male in the household he should get the vote, right?
So what is a cookie monster you ask?
It’s an amazing combination of a warm Missouri Girl Chocolate Chip Cookie, topped with vanilla frozen custard, and then drowned in the richest, smoothest homemade hot fudge sauce you have ever tasted.
Easy Homemade Hot Fudge Sauce
This hot fudge sauce is so good and so easy. Put all of the ingredients into a sauce pan and bring to a boil. Afterward you will have a smooth, rich, and creamy hot fudge sauce that you’ll be licking out of the pan.
So. Stinking. Good.

It will be an instant hit.
