Probably the easiest and most welcome dessert in the summertime is a big bowl of ice cream, drizzled with hot fudge. It's so simple to bring out a quart of decent store-bought ice cream, but serving it with a homemade sauce really puts it over the top and transforms it from a weeknight dessert into something extra-special.
Here are nine delicious sauces, from essential hot fudge to an Oreo twist on the classic, and for you maximalists, a creamy candy bar sauce. Want to go lighter and fresher? Warm raspberry or fresh cherry is where it's at.
