This sauce is so good drizzled over ice cream. Layered in cakes. Stirring into milk. Added to milk shakes. Or, and I not saying I do this, eaten from a spoon!
- 1 – 12 oz. can evaporated milk
- 1 & 2/3 cups sugar
- 1 cup cocoa, sifted
- pinch salt
- 1/2 to 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 Tablespoons unsalted butter
Whisk together; evaporated milk, sugar, salt and sifted cocoa in a sauce pan. Bring to a boil, stirring/whisking to keep from sticking, and cook until thickened about 5 minutes of boiling. Watch out – it can boil over! Remove from heat and add vanilla and butter, stirring until melted.
