For The Love Of Chocolate...


I love chocolate. My love of the stuff is my achilles heel.


One of my favourite quick fix desserts is vanilla ice cream & home made chocolate sauce. Admittedly, chocolate sauce is one of the few things that I can 'cook' & I was thinking recently that it would make a good gift, I just need to work out a way to package it up.


This is a test run using a recycled glass juice bottle. So far, so good. Just take off the lid, zap it in the microwave & pour a generous amount of the warm sauce onto homemade or store bought vanilla ice cream.

The recipe is super easy & can be found in Stephanie Alexander' s The Cook's Companion, under 'chocolate' of course!

That looks so yummy. We are all addicted to chocolate here so sounds like a winner as a gift. Cute twine you used for the label. Catherine:)

I made up a "super sundae in a jar gift" last year for my secret sister at church. I used maraschino cherry and olive jars for the toppings (homemade hot fudge and homemade peanut butter sauce) and then in a mason jar layered sundae toppings (marshmallows, chocolate chips, sprinkles, gummi bears, etc)
she loved it!

Since then I've often thought that it would make a nice thank you gift or hostess gift.
