Homemade for the Holidays: Hot Fudge Sauce

Welcome to Homemade for the Holidays! Well, we are only 3 days until Christmas…are you ready?

I hope you have a little time to make some of this Hot Fudge Sauce! You WON’T be sorry! It’s smooth and creamy and oh so…chocolatey!

I was pleasantly surprised at how quick and easy {that seems to be the special words lately} this Hot Fudge Sauce is! And when I say quick, I mean about 5 minutes from start to finish! When I first saw the recipe on Our Best Bites, I added it to my to-do list right away.


Homemade for the Holidays: Hot Fudge Sauce


  • 1 can (14 oz) Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 3 oz. Semi-sweet chocolate


  1. Chop chocolate into small chunks.
  2. Add all ingredients to a heavy saucepan and cook over low heat until sauce is smooth and creamy.
  3. Let cool slightly and spoon into jar.
  4. Store in fridge

Do you remember those little Mason Jars that I used for the Cupcakes in a Jar during the Cupcake Decorating Party? I used the same kind and they worked perfectly.

You can get 2 jars full with this recipe. That makes the cost about $3 for each gift, including the jar. After making this sauce, I don’t think you will ever buy store bought again.

Pair it up with some Peppermint Ice Cream, add a ribbon, a circle of scrapbook paper to the lid and a cute tag {I ordered these from Label Daddy when Eversave had them on special}

A perfect gift for the Ice Cream Lover in your life!!
