In 1981, Ruth and Richard Roffers started R&R Homestead Kitchen producing and selling homemade toppings for ice cream and other desserts. Located in DePere, Wisconsin, R&R Homestead has evolved into a family business with sales across the country. The recipe for the original Hot Fudge Topping was created by Ruth using the finest ingredients and no preservatives.
The old-fashioned quality is ensured because R&R Homestead Kitchen prepares all their toppings in small batches. R&R Homestead Kitchen has been recognized for its Hot Fudge Topping in numerous national publications including Better Homes and Gardens, House and Garden Magazine, and the New York Post. According to Burt Wolf, National Food Editor for WABC-TV: “It's the best hot fudge topping I've ever tasted.” In addition to Hot Fudge, R&R Homestead Kitchen also excels in CaramelScotch, Mocha Cocoa, Caramel Pear Cinnamon and Bittersweet Mint Toppings.
