This Chocolate Sauce is the Perfect Gift

If you love to give handmade, edible gifts, you are going to love giving this chocolate sauce, if you can resist keeping it for yourself.  It's so easy and cheap to make and you really will become famous for giving the best gifts.

You will need:
60g milk chocolate
1 cup sugar
6 tablespoons hot coffee
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Step 1. Melt the chocolate.

Step 2. Pour the chocolate, hot coffee, sugar and vanilla into a blender. Blend until smooth.

Step 3. Pour into small, sterilised jars and refrigerate up to 10 days (I guarantee it won't last that long once it's tasted).

When cold, you can use this sauce as icing on cakes, or warm it and pour it over ice cream.

It takes less than five minutes to make and uses ingredients just about everyone has in the house. As a last minute hostess, thank-you, birthday or even Christmas gift it is perfect. Of course you have to get it away from the family to be able to give it so I suggest you make a double batch, one to enjoy and one to give.

If you do give it as a gift, make it just before you need to give it, put it in a pretty jar (small jam or salsa jars are nice) and label it "A Gift of Chocolate Sauce" with the expiry date (it keeps for 10 days) and refrigeration instructions on it.
