Appreciation + Silky Fudge Sauce Recipe

Yesterday was Administrative Professionals Day!

Have you taken the time this week to thank those that make your life better? Easier? Richer? More fun? … Whoever that person is to you, thank them.

A simple thank you is a powerful thing.

I myself am a Coordinator and fall into that Administrative Professional bucket and I work with a remarkable group of women who work tirelessly each day, sometimes with very little thanks or recognition, to create a better work environment tomorrow than we had today or yesterday.

These ladies are detail-oriented and organized, always willing to lend a hand, extrememly helpful and complimentary, so selflessly giving of their time and talents, and I wanted to thank them. Honor them. Applaud them for what they do.

They truly are an inspiration to me.

So, from my heart, that means a food gift.

And not just any old food gift.

Homemade.

Indulgent.

Sinful.

Hot. Fudge. Sauce.

Silky Hot Fudge Sauce Recipe:

{Each recipe yield 2 cups}

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup butter
  • 1 (4oz) bar of Baker’s German Sweet Chocolate
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 small (5oz) can evaporated milk
  • 1 tbsp light corn syrup
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1.5 tsp vanilla extract

Directions:

1. Melt butter and chocolate in a heavy saucepan over med-low heat. Once melted, stir in sugar, evaporated milk, corn syrup, and salt; cook over medium heat, stirring gently, for about 5 minutes or just until sugar is dissolved and sauce is perfectly smooth.

2. Remove pan from heat; stir in the vanilla.

3. Allow the pan to cool to room temperature. Allow the jar to come completely to room temperature before storing in the refrigerator.

4. Store the fudge sauce in the refrigerator for up to one month… if it lasts that long.

Once warmed, it is great drizzled over ice cream, pound cake, cheesecake, fruit, served alongside with cookies, brownies, or cupcakes, or even with just a simple spoon.

Share a little sweet treat with the ones you love!

*Note: this recipe can easily be doubled.
