There’s something about going to Grandma’s house for the holidays – it’s warm, loud, and the smell of food makes me indescribably happy. One of my favorite memories from my Grandma’s house was dessert – she makes the BEST homemade hot fudge sauce! It is perfect for pies, ice cream, or with a spoon! Basically, grandma’s hot fudge sauce is a staple at my Thanksgiving Day meal. I’m so excited to share it with you today!!
For me, the star of any meal is dessert – Thanksgiving is no exception: Pie is KING and Marie Callender’s Dessert Pie (HERE)and NEW Loaf Cakes (more info here!) are an excellent way to go because they are just like homemade! Add Grandma’s hot fudge and you’re SET!
With so many delicious options, why not have a pie bar? We had Grandma’s hot fudge, whipped cream, ice cream, and (of course) pies and loafs. YUM!
The other king of Thanksgiving HAS to be the turkey and it HAS to be cooked well.

I like to have wine on-hand during the holidays when friends and family come over. No, I don’t drink it, but it seems like the courteous thing to do. These classic wines (see all of them here) are said to be balanced and smooth, making them ideal for food pairings and sharing.
