Recipe: Hot fudge sauce

Happy 2013! It's our little tradition to make sundaes on New Year's Eve, but they're just as good on New Year's Day. Here's the easy recipe we use for Real Hot Fudge Sauce. (Sure, you could open a jar, or worse, just squirt Hershey's syrup on ice cream and call that a sundae, but you're better than that, aren't you?)

Hot Fudge Sauce

2 squares (2 ounces) unsweetened chocolate
2 T butter
2/3 C sugar
1/2 C evaporated milk
1/2 t vanilla

Melt chocolate and butter in a saucepan. Stir in the sugar, then the milk. Stir constantly over medium heat, taking care not to let sauce burn on the bottom, until it comes to small but definite boil. Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla. The HFS will thicken as it cools. Serve warm.

(To make with cocoa powder instead of squares of chocolate, substitute 6 T of cocoa powder and use 4 T butter.)

(My diet begins tomorrow with the bleak, gray dawning of January 2nd.)
