Slickepott Fudge and Caramel Sauce

American Made Since 2007

We have a funny Swedish name and some serious sauce.

Tell us about your business.

Fudge sauce has been an institution in my family for well over fifty years. [Yes, it REALLY was my grandmother's recipe.] It started with Nana, my dad’s mother, giving away fudge sauce every year at Christmastime. My mother continued the tradition, with us children standing on chairs to help stir the tall pots atop the stove. The more we gave, the more people wanted, so our list grew and grew and grew; which is part of the reason I decided to take it public when I graduated from high school in 2007. Slickepott uses a slightly tweaked version of that old family recipe (just six simple ingredients; fresh New York State cream, cane sugar, NYS butter, unsweetened chocolate, vanilla, and salt) to create the decadent chocolate ganache that has made fans across the country (plus England and Spain!) swoon for more. Each jar comes from a small batch, cooked from scratch by ‘yours truly’.

What makes your business stand out?

You'll understand when you taste the sauce.

What's the best business advice you've received?

"Shoot first. Don't spend all your time aiming. You can always readjust."
