If you’re using the hot fudge recipe in the link above, it will thicken to the perfect consistency. However, if you’re in a hurry, you can use prepared chocolate frosting in it’s place, you’ll need an entire tub. (About 1 1/2 cups).

Variations:

* Make a layer of chocolate and a layer of vanilla pudding, omit the peppermint extract.
* Irish Cheesecake Bars- mix in 1 pkg of softened cream cheese in the prepared pudding, then fold in the whipped cream, layer as directed above.

This entire recipe takes less than 10 minutes to prepare from start to finish and makes a wonderful dessert dish for picnics, events and holidays.
