Hot Fudge Sauce for Fun with Jars Friday- Bonus Christmas Gifts Ideas Too!

Hot Fudge Sauce by Cravings of a Lunatic

Hi folks. Hope everyone is doing well. I finally had time to put this together. Took a little extra effort than normal so hope it was worth it and you all enjoy this post.

With Christmas getting close I thought something you could give as gifts would be nice. So I let my mind wander and…………oh sorry I did it again. Okay Lunie let’s focus. Gifts in jars, Christmas, ideas for others. So my mind wandered and well let’s be honest when it wanders it goes in the same direction most of the time. Ice cream and well, chocolate. I am a girl after all. I scoured the internet looking for the perfect hot fudge sauce and man are there a ton of “perfect” hot fudges out there. You can find quite a few “ultimate” and “best” hot fudge recipes too. Now I decided that just wouldn’t do. I did not want to be “prefect”, “ultimate” or “best”. So again I had to let my mind wander to what could compete with those. And this is where the mind went.

    I hate you. Fudge is my biggest weakness (okay, among many others). This looks WAY too good to be legal!
