Delicious Quick Chocolate Sauce

Ever get a craving for ice cream and some good, I mean good, hot fudge sauce? This is a recipe that my mother made when my siblings and I were growing up, and it is de-licious!

It also works up quickly, and is better tasting than store bought, so it’s great for an easy special dessert when you have guests.

In a small saucepan, cook the milk and unsweetened baking chocolate squares on low to medium heat until chocolate melts, stirring constantly. As it is almost completely melted, it takes on a thick consistency.

Stir in the sugar, and continue cooking and stirring with a wooden spoon or a whisk.

Add the butter and salt, blending well.

Continue to cook and stir about  5 minutes till slightly thick.

Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla.

The sauce will thicken on standing; let sit about five to ten minutes or so.

Scoop ice cream into bowls, and ladle your scrumptious hot fudge sauce on top. Watch the smiles appear!
