"When our four children were growing up, we served this sweet chocolate sauce over hand-cranked ice cream," recalls Dorothy Mekemson of Humboldt, Iowa. "Now when we have friends over for cards, we finish the evening with sundaes made with this syrup," she notes.


  • 6 ounces unsweetened chocolate, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons butter, cubed
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 can (12 ounces) evaporated milk
  • Ice cream


  1. In a microwave, melt chocolate and butter; stir until smooth. Transfer to a small saucepan. Add sugar alternately with milk, stirring constantly. Cook for 15 minutes, stirring often. Serve warm over ice cream. Refrigerate leftovers.
