Christmas Gift Bags

I made Christmas Gift Bags for Levi's family and extended family this year.  It was a huge project but, as always, a lot of fun.  Here's what I made:

55 jars of Homemade Hot Fudge
over 100 Caramel and Chocolate covered Pretzels
Cranberry Orange Cookies

I made extra Hot Fudge for friends and Levi's co-workers.  I've posted my Mom's famous Hot Fudge recipe at the end of this post.  It's amazing.
I made 16 gift bags in total.

Mom’s Own Hot Fudge Sauce


1 can evaporated milk (13 oz)
1 cup sugar
1 package semisweet chocolate chips (12 oz) or 2 CUPS
1 teaspoon vanilla
½ teaspoon almond extract
2 tablespoons butter


1. Heat evaporated milk and sugar over medium heat until mixture almost starts to boil, stirring from
time to time. (If it boils over it will be a big mess!)
2. Add chocolate chips and stir constantly until boiling. Cook until the chocolate is smooth and thicker.
3. Take off the heat and add vanilla, almond extract and butter. Stir everything smooth.
4. Pour into jars and let cool with lids off. Cover tightly and refrigerate.
