hot fudge sauce

I would like to give "ice cream sundae" gift baskets as Christmas presents this year. I want to include a homemade hot fudge sauce, but I am having some difficulty. I have tried four recipes so far- they are either gritty or don't last long. Can anyone give me some advice/ideas/recipes? I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks.

Here's my recipe for hot fudge sauce. My dh loves it!!


Hot Fudge Sauce

3 T. Cocoa
1 c. Sugar
1 (5 ounce) can Evaporated Milk
1 T. Butter
1 t. Vanilla

Combine cocoa and sugar in sauce pan and place over medium heat. Add milk, bring to a boil and stir constantly. Remove from heat and add butter and vanilla. Stir until butter melts.

Yield: 1 cup


I tend to cook mine a little while so the sugar will dissolve well. If it cooks too long, it will come out thick.

Good luck!

How long does this hot fudge topping last? Does it have to be refriderated? Sealed in a canning jar? This is something I'd like to do.

Thanks

I'm so excited

Thanks for posting the recipes, great ideas for Christmas! On both recipes, how long will they store and can it be on a shelf, in the frig or can it be frozen and then thawed?

Anna

Hot Fudge Sauce

The fudge sauce should always be refrigerated. It can also be frozed and thawed and used.

After refrigeration or freezing, it is advisable to warm in water on stove, in double boiler, or in microwave.

I always keep mine in the refrigerator. Then we heat it up in the microwave to put over ice cream. Yummy!

Enjoy!!

Thanks for all your help. My family is enjoying the taste test trials! How long does the sauce last in the fridge? Most recipes I've seen have said a week. Also, does anyone put their sauce in jars and do the water-boiling sealing method?
