Gosh my family treats me well! Funny cards, and cards full of caring thoughts and good wishes.
So many nice gifts for my favorite place of all, home.A lovely framed ode to living life and tea light holders for the mantel, a certificate for a Soda Stream in an adorable paper purse, and wonderful things for the yard.
And today is also Cookbook Sunday. I love Cookbook Sundays! But I tend to have issues with Cookbook Sunday. It is my own fault really, I wait and I wait and I am caught empty handed for a chosen recipe to use. But not today I tell you. Today we are going to make Chocolate Sauce. Not just any sauce, chocolate sauce that keeps (almost) indefinitely.
Chocolate sauce made from pantry ingredients, chocolate sauce from this book.........................
from: Five Star Favorites, friends of Maime and Ike
5 oz unsweetened baking chocolate (like Hershey's)
1 1/2 c sugar
1/8 t salt
pinch of cream of tartar
1 can (about 14 oz) evaporated milk
1 t vanilla
Melt chocolate in a saucepan.
Remove from heat and blend in sugar, salt and cream of tartar.
Slowly stir in evaporated milk.
Heat, stirring constantly, until mixture comes to a rolling boil. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.
Serve hot or cold, depending upon the dessert. This sauce keeps almost indefinitely if covered and refrigerated. It thins when reheated.
Makes approximately 2 cups.
As always, thanks for stopping by.
I appreciate your visits and your comments.
