I love to hear stories of mothers who cooked amazing meals and the recipes got passed down from generation to generation. I wish that's how it was for my family. Don't get me wrong, my mom cooked for 6 children every night of the week and also a hot breakfast on the weekends. There just aren't that many recipes that are family favorites and were passed down from my grandmothers. Food in my family was all about serving the masses and not breaking the bank. So with that being said I bring one recipe to you from my mom, Grandma's Chocolate Sauce. My kids ask her for it every time we have dessert at her house. I think I got the sweet tooth baking gene from my mom :)
The ingredient list for this recipe is quite simple. It uses all shelf stable ingredients and is simple to put together.
Mix the sugar, evaporated milk, vanilla, and chocolate chips into a saucepan. Notice I grabbed the mini-chips by accident and started pouring them in before I noticed.
Stir constantly over LOW heat until all the chocolate is smooth and melted. This can take about 10 minutes until it finally all melts. It is worth it though!!
We made this on New Year's Eve as a treat and my three year old had just had a bath and couldn't wait to help out.
We topped our ice cream with the yummy chocolate sauce and also dipped some strawberries in it!!
