If you are in a hurry for a gift, but still want to give something you have made yourself, this wonderful Hot Fudge Sauce fits the bill. It only takes about ten minutes to make once you have all the ingredients, and it packages up easily into a lovely gift. Plus, you can enjoy the sauce right away over ice cream as your reward!
In a pot on the stove, mix the cocoa powder with the cream and stir on low until the powder dissolves into the cream. Add the remaining ingredients and stir over low heat until thoroughly mixed. Bring to a slow boil, and simmer, stirring, for about five minutes until thickened a little. Allow to cool to lukewarm, and pour into jars. Makes about 4 cups.
To serve, heat until it reaches a stirrable consistency, pour over ice cream.
Mexican Hot Fudge Sauce
Add 1 tsp ground cinnamon along with the rest of the ingredients.
Mocha Hot Fudge Sauce
Add 2 Tbsp instant coffee powder along with the rest of the ingredients.
Once you’ve made your Hot Fudge Sauce and have finished licking the bowl, package it up for gift-giving this holiday season. First I poured the sauce into some Weck canning jars. I also used custom circle labels along with craft paper and string to personalize it. Add matching oval hang tags and write the lucky recipient’s name on the back. This would make a perfect stocking stuffer!
