Homemade Christmas Gift (Homemade Hot Fudge Sauce)

Who doesn't love hot fudge on their ice cream?! Did you know you can make it at home and put it in a jar, decorate that jar and give it as a homemade Christmas gift? It's so easy thanks to the Land O' Lakes folks! Visit them on twitter @LandOLakesktchn for lots of #Christmasideas!! 

Home made hot fudge sauce
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 stick Land O' Lakes butter
Combine all ingredients in a saucepan and over low heat, stir until chips and butter are melted and mixture is smooth. Place in jars and store in fridge until ready to heat and use! Keeps for a week. 

Any brand sweetened condensed milk will do, but a name brand like carnation or eagle brand will work better-- be sure you are NOT using evaporated milk. 

Add one cup of your favorite semi-sweet chocolate chips

And a stick (1/2 cup) butter (Land O' Lakes of course!) 

It will soon begin to melt, stir often over low heat to avoid scorching! 

It's done! Yum! 

It was wonderful over plain yellow cake! Imagine it over that new Edy's peppermint ice cream! I need to go to Kroger!! 

Those used coffee drink bottles would be perfect! Add a homespun or Christmas ribbon, add a note that says carefully reheat as needed and store in the refrigerator! 

Or use a jelly jar! Perfect for giving!

Merry Christmas!
Happy Cooking!!

I love all y'all!
