I like to serve this Marshmallow Hot Fudge over NEW Signature Reserve Super Premium Madagascar Vanilla Bean Ice Cream for a rich indulgent treat that’s so worth it!
I also like that I don’t even need to dirty a bowl because this wonderful ice cream comes in a great container, so I can enjoy my sweet ice cream treat with Marshmallow Hot Fudge right out of the container.
Want to make homemade ice cream?
I think homemade ice cream is a great way to go. If you’re looking to make some of your own, try my York Peppermint Patty Ice Cream, Peanut Butter Fudge Ripple Ice Cream, or Coffee Ice Cream. They all go great with this hot fudge sauce!
I buy my Signature Reserve products at my local Vons, and you can also find them exclusively at all of the Albertsons Companies family of stores, including Albertsons, Safeway, ACME Markets, Jewel-Osco, Pavilions, Randalls, Tom Thumb, Shaw’s, Star Market, and Carrs/Safeway.

I love my Vons
Vons is my regular grocery store. I mention all the time about how I find cool things at my store, and often about where I find things in my grocery store. That’s Vons. I often share cool some of the amazing produce I find at my Vons on my Instragram page.
This Signature Reserve ice cream from Vons is super creamy and delicious. And you know how picky I am about my ice cream. Ice cream is my favorite dessert, but it has to be a good ice cream, I mean a really good creamy ice cream with no icy crystals. And the flavors have to be amazing!
Notes on Marshmallow Hot Fudge Sauce
I love hot fudge sauce. It’s so rich and creamy. So chocolaty and delicious. I mean, there’s a reason it’s the classic to top ice cream.
And, I’ve made this hot fudge sauce a little extra special by adding soft fluffy marshmallows to it.
Hot fudge is actually really easy to make at home. Just a little stirring, melting, and in about 15 minutes you have a delicious way to top any ice cream.
My recipe calls for light corn syrup. Keep in mind that corn syrup isn’t the high fructose corn syrup that everyone dislikes. The corn syrup in this recipe keeps the sauce soft and lovely.
Can I reheat it?
Yes. I like to do mine on the stove to or the microwave.
If you reheat it in the microwave, always do so in small increments, like 10 seconds, and stir after each time, until it reaches desired consistency
If you reheat on the stove, stir constantly as it reheats.
Make ahead tips:
- Marshmallow Hot Fudge Sauce can be made a few days ahead
- Store sauce, covered, in the fridge
- Scoop the ice cream into bowls, and freeze the ice cream in the bowls until you’re ready to serve. That way it’s all ready to go.
Use your Marshmallow Hot Fudge Sauce on
- Ice cream (of course),
- Banana splits
- Try it on Greek yogurt for a healthier twist
- On Pancakes or waffles for a breakfast treat
