To add a little variety to my gift baskets I made a dessert sauce. It could be a topping for ice cream served warm or cold or a dipping sauce for cookies and fruit as well. Super easy to make too which I loved. I doubled the recipe, but if you do 1 batch it will make enough to fill 3 8-ounce jars.

And just because I’m short on time (and lazy) I was excited to see these little bags at HEB near the nuts and coconut on the baking isle.

To dress up the jars I printed out the title in red font on green paper then using my scrapbooking circle punch punched them out  to attach to the top of the jar.
