{a sweet gift}

I made homemade hot fudge for our Family Night last night, and as we were devouring it, I thought to myself how perfect it would be to give as a gift.

So, I poured the leftover fudge into small canning jars (next time I'll use wide-mouthed, but this is what I had in my pantry), spray painted the lid cream, then added a darling label ("This year will be sweet, with you as my teacher!) and some ribbon.

This tag is for a first day of school gift, but it could easily be changed to an end of the year gift as well. And how yummy for holiday neighbor gifts?

Whether you give it as a gift, or make it for your family, this simple recipe is sure to please. In under 15 minutes, you can have delicious hot fudge sauce, using ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry.

Hot Fudge Sauce

6 T. butter
2 c. powdered sugar
3 T. cocoa
1 c. evaporated milk

Over low heat melt butter thoroughly. Add sugar and cocoa. Mix well, then gradually add milk. Bring to a boil, and boil for 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from stove, then serve warm or cold.

How long do you think this will keep in the fridge? Sounds like a fabulous gift!

It keeps in the fridge about a week. If it lasts that long! :)

What a wonderful idea! I am a teacher and like to give gifts to our secretaries and custodians and with a little tweeking the sauce will be wonderful. The perfect universal gift-who doesn't like chocolate!
Thanks for the inspiration.

Country Dreaming--

It probably makes enough for 4 jars as shown above. We ate a lot of it, so I am estimating. If you were doing this for neighbor gifts, you could easily double or triple it to get more.

I did this! (and forgot to take pictures, of course) per your sugestion for my boys' teachers. I have to say your recipe is the best one i've tested. (yields 2 pints)
And my one son's teacher said she never got a beginning of the year gift before!
Thanks for the great idea and total execution of it as well!
