Mocha Hot Fudge Sauce

I don’t like coffee. Wait! Don’t leave just yet! This mocha hot fudge sauce is my compromise for the wonderful world of coffee lovers out there (including my husband, Tyler). Plus, it’s vegan!

This sauce would pair perfectly with ice cream, brownies, or pound cake (perhaps with a bit of coconut whipped cream on top)!
