Hot Fudge Sundae


Who doesn't love a hot fudge sundae? I guess there those among us who are just odd, or perhaps have some terrible allergy that prohibits them from eating such decadent desserts. Whatever the reason: allergies or otherwise, I guess that is more for me. (Insert evil laughter)

This recipe came from my Grandma Jo. It came from an old cookbook of hers. My mom can not remember the name of cookbook, however she remembers originally the sauce was made with a fudge cake. They just used it for ice cream sundaes. It's a little time consuming, but sooo worth it in the end.

1 stick of margarine or butter
1 Cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 can of evaporated milk
2 cups of powdered sugar
1 tsp of vanilla

Melt margarine and chocolate chips together. Add evaporated milk and powdered sugar. Bring to a boil; stirring constantly. Once it starts boiling, continue to stir--constantly--and boil for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and add the vanilla. Let sit for about 15 minutes so it is not scalding hot and won't turn your ice cream into liquid.

I really don't know how many it serves. What I do know, is it is DE-licious!

* A little useless knowledge for you:
Peter Bird's book The First Food Empire, (2000, Philimore, Chichester, England) it is stated as fact that the name 'sundae' for ice cream with toppings was adopted from Illinois state's early prohibition of ice cream consumption on Sundays, but ice cream with a topping that obscured the main product was not deemed to be ice cream.* This information came from: Wikipedia.

Whoops...grandma Jo got the recipe from her mom...Grandma Palmer. It was part of a dessert that grandma Jo did not remember. But, who cares. it is the best fudge sauce you can ever eat.
