Old Fashioned Hot Fudge Sauce

Needed a quick hostess gift this past week to take to my Swap Meet (more on that later this week), so I whipped up some of this delicious hot fudge sauce. Of course, I had to frou-frou it up in a jar with some cute fabric, and buttons.

Serve it on ice cream, over cheesecake or pound cake, or in a dire chocolate emergency, eat it with a spoon while standing in front of the open refrigerator...

Makes a perfect hostess gift or you can fill smaller jars or containers and give it to teacher's, friends, Secret Santa partners...the possibilities are endless with this one.

Old Fashioned Hot Fudge Sauce

2 cups sugar
4 tablespoons flour
2/3 cup cocoa powder

2 cups milk

4 tablespoons butter

2 teaspoons vanilla

In a medium bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients.

Over medium heat, combine milk, butter and vanilla until the butter has melted.

Add dry ingredients to the milk mixture, constantly whisking.

Boil, stirring constantly until thick and smooth, about 5 minutes.

Cool and refrigerate unused portion.

Note: Can be reheated in a double-boiler, or microwave, as needed.

Such a fun idea! Love chocolate in any form ;)

The salsa recipe you asked about isn't meant for canning- but it does freeze well. There's a note about it at the end of the post.
