The Best Chocolate Fudge Sauce!
My Aunt Sue makes the best chocolate fudge sauce! It’s soooo good. We had some for the first time when we visited a couple of months ago. I had to have the recipe. And, now I’ll share it with you. It would be a great homemade Christmas gift, or a nice treat for you and yours with some peppermint ice cream, or for guests at a Christmas dinner or party… It’s just plain good, so you should make it. I know I’m going to.
Here’s Aunt Sue!
Hi everyone – I am Rachel O’s Aunt Sue – and I love to cook and I love to try new recipes – even whole meals. The only thing is I try them out on my friends and family and when guests come for dinner?? I know – they say thats not a good thing to cook something new you’ve never done before when company comes but I figure by reading the ingredients you get a pretty good idea if you will like a recipe or not and its an adventure for everyone. How fun is that!!!
Anyway here is a recipe I hope you will enjoy this Christmas Season – guaranteed to please both young and old.
|Aunt Sue’s Chocolate Fudge Sauce||
- 1 cup butter
- 1/2 cup cocoa powder
- 3 cups sugar
- 1 can evaporated milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- Combine butter, cocoa, sugar, evaporated milk in a sauce pan, over medium heat. Stir often. Bring to a boil and boil stirring constantly for 7 minutes. Put your timer on.
- Remove from heat. This next step if VERY IMPORTANT you may think you can omit but it truly will change the sauce. Pour the hot sauce into a blender (remove middle plug, cover with a towel and hold down your lid) and blend for 2 to 4 minutes.
- I pour it in a 1 quart canning jar and store it in the fridge.
If you want to give it as a homemade Christmas gilt – using pinking sheers cut a large circle and secure it over the lid of the canning jar with a decorative ribbon and ‘wa -la’ you are done
Merry Christmas everyone.
