Hot Fudge Sundae birthplace.

Home of the Hot Fudge Sundae

Hollywood Blvd., most famous for its star-studded Walk of Fame and Grauman's Chinese Theater, is also the birthplace of the hot fudge sundae. As a variant of the popular early 20th century ice cream sundae treat, Hollywood claims the birthright for the hot fudge version. The original C. C. Brown's ice cream shop is no longer there, having been converted into one of the many souvenir shops that line this section of the street. But for those looking for fame, you can find Roger Moore's (James Bond) star just outside of the doorway.
