Hot Fudge Sauce

Hot Fudge Sauce1

The dark cocoa flavor of this hot fudge is the perfect topping to any dessert. Never use store-bought sauce again!

This hot fudge is a preview to my next recipe. You will need hot fudge sauce for what is coming this weekend on Easybaked! Whenever I have a dessert that needs a spoonful of hot fudge on top, this is my go-to recipe. It has hardly any ingredients, and it is easy to make, store, and reheat.

Here’s how to make it: (printable recipe)

INGREDIENTS: makes about 2 cups of sauce.

  • 1 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips (use dark chocolate chips for less sweet sauce,  and milk chocolate chips for more)
  • 2 Tablespoons of butter
  • 1 can (14 oz.) of sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 Tablespoons of water
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla

DIRECTIONS:

  • In a small saucepan, melt chips, butter, condensed milk and water together. Stir until completely smooth.
  • Add vanilla and mix well.
  • Serve warm, or place in an airtight container (or one of these cute jars) -in the fridge for 2-3 days, reheating as needed.
  • ENJOY!!!

Hot Fudge Sauce 2My thoughts: This is my stand-by recipe for hot fudge. I got it from my friend Monica about 20 years ago, and it has stood the test of time – and topped a lot of yummy things over the years!  Stay tuned for a deliciously fun treat to serve with this— coming this weekend!  ~r

Peanut Butter Caramel Sauce

Posted on

What was your least favorite Halloween Candy? You know…the one left at the bottom of that plastic pumpkin at Thanksgiving? Mine was the Mary Jane Peanut Butter Kiss. The distinctively wrapped orange and black chewy candy with peanut butter in the middle– remember those? I remember trying to trade my brother 10 of them for a Nestle Crunch and being refused.

My goal: Make something WONDERFUL out of Mary Jane PB Kisses.

The result: AMAZING! Seriously the best caramel sauce I’ve ever had.

This creamy caramel with just a hint of peanut butter flavor stays soft even when used as an ice cream topping (it’s really good with apples too!– reeeeeallly good…..!)

INGREDIENTS:

  • 15 Kraft Caramels (unwrapped)
  • 15 Mary Jane Peanut Butter Kisses (unwrapped)– (I found mine at Walgreens: 99 cents/bag)
  • 1 (14oz.) can of sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 c. butter

DIRECTIONS:

  • Place all ingredients in a saucepan and melt, stirring constantly.
  • Stir until melted and completely smooth (about 6 to 8 minutes)
  • Cool a little and pour over ice cream (or anything else that would taste good with gooey caramel sauce!)

My thoughts: I experimented with these horrible little candies all weekend…They melt in the microwave in 15 seconds (and they smell TERRIBLE burnt!)  Once they melt, they harden and form crystals within seconds (no dipping apples in THAT). They do not combine with chocolate. They DO combine with peanut butter, but YUCK– they form a dough-like consistency that sticks to your teeth.

Adding them to my best caramel sauce was the answer– and they really do taste WONDERFUL in this-they add a sweet peanut butter flavor that goes PERFECT with caramel. So a month from now, when you find these little gems still sitting at the bottom of your kids plastic pumpkins, think of easybaked and make some caramel! 🙂 -r
