Dark Chocolate Hot Fudge Sauce

Birthday Time!  "What kind of birthday cake do you want?" "Ice cream" "You want an ice cream cake?" "No, just ice cream"  I smile like a cheshire cat.  I don't have to make a cake, yahoo!  I break out the colors of the rainbow sprinkles and loads of candy along with this hot thick coal colored fudge sauce. 

 butter, cream and sugar
