Hot Fudge Sundae Sauce
I may have mentioned before that I come from a family of sweet-tooths...sweet-teeth...whatever. You can blame my mother (and her mother before her) for my appreciation of Hot Fudge Sundaes.
A sweet lady in Colorado gave me this recipe for Hot Fudge Sundae Sauce after I begged her for it when I tasted its goodness at a Relief Society meeting. It's so easy to make and 5,000 times better* than that microwavable junk you can buy at the store (no offense, Microwavable Junk!). Now, that's what I'm talkin' about!
1/2 C Karo Light Corn Syrup
1/2 C Evaporated Milk (not Sweet and Condensed!)
2 Tbsp Water
2 C Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
1 tsp Vanilla
1. In a medium-sized sauce pan, combine Karo syrup, evaporated milk, and water. Stir over medium heat until it just comes to a boil.
2. Remove from heat and immediately stir in the chocolate chips until smooth.
3. Stir in vanilla.
Yield: About 1 pint
The sauce stores very well in the fridge for a long time. Warm it up in the microwave or over the stove when you're ready to use it again.

*Have I ever mentioned that I may exaggerate a bit? Yeah, I'm an exaggerator. But in my defense, it is better than store bought! 5,000 times better? That's for you to decide.
