Hot fudge sauce finds its way into many ice cream sundaes, adding rich, chocolate flavor to the already sweet treat. You can also use hot fudge to top cheesecakes, cookies, pies and other pastries. Not surprisingly, hot fudge sauce increases the calorie content of any dessert.
Hot fudge sauce typically contains melted chocolate, butter, salt, sugar and evaporated milk. The resulting warmed sauce, which tastes like melted fudge, brings texture and another taste sensation to freezing ice cream.
While the exact calorie content may vary according to the specific manufacturer or recipe, a typical 2-tablespoon serving of hot fudge contains 120 to 130 calories, according to MyFitnessPal.

The same serving also provides 4 percent of your daily value for calcium, based on a 2,000-calorie diet.
