Fudge Sauce

Homemade fudge sauce makes a sweet Christmas gift, especially when it's packaged in a cute canning jar and tied with pretty ribbon. I use this easy recipe from Real Simple magazine, found here.

Fudge Sauce

Ingredients:
1 cup heavy cream
2 tablespoons light corn syrup
12 ounces semisweet or bittersweet chocolate, chopped (I use semisweet chocolate chips)
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
Directions:
In a saucepan, combine heavy cream and corn syrup over medium heat and bring to a boil.
Remove from heat and whisk in chocolate until melted. Stir in the vanilla.
Pour sauce into jars and cool completely before covering or refrigerating, otherwise the sauce will become granular. The sauce keeps up to 1 month in the refrigerator.
To reheat a small amount of sauce (for one or two servings), microwave in a small cup for 10 seconds; check and stir. If needed, microwave another 5 or 10 seconds. Do not overheat!

  1. Looks delicious. I doubt that sauce would last a month in my refrigerator!
