This is our families favorite recipe. My mom would make it growing up. I’m not sure if it is a secret recipe up to this point but I’m sharing it with you now. Anytime I make it I get asked so I may as well publicize it.
I made this for friends and neighbors this year for Christmas. It was a hit and may become a new tradition.
1/2 cup butter (can be salted or unsalted)
6 oz (1 cup) semi-sweet chocolate chips (cannot use milk chocolate or it will be waxy)
1 can evaporated milk
2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
Melt the butter and chocolate together. Once melted add the milk and powdered sugar. Stir continually while bringing it to a boil. Continue to stir for 6 minutes on low keeping mixture boiling. After 6 minutes remove from heat and stir in vanilla.
Eat over ice-cream, berries or let it cool and eat by the spoon full! Make sure to refrigerate any unused portion.
