Granny's Homemade Chocolate Sauce

It's the perfect time for sweet stuff! Valentine's Day is just around the corner and this just might be the thing you need to make for your honey or just yourself! However my memories of this homemade chocolate sauce come from delicious family dinners at Granny's house. No matter what dessert she fixed she always seemed to have this homemade chocolate sauce on hand. I have found that this chocolate sauce is perfect for making hot fudge brownies! Top a brownie with chocolate, ice cream, and if you're feeling extra sweet whipped cream!

And remember our fabulous Lasagna meal last month when Christine came home? Well here's the fabulous dessert. The syrup is good for everyday desserts and special desserts.

Granny's Homemade Chocolate Syrup
1 stick butter
1 c sugar
Almost 1/2 c flour
3 tbsp cocoa
5 oz carnation milk
1 tsp vanilla
Melt butter in saucepan; add sugar, flour, and cocoa. Bring to a boil, continue stirring. Remove from heat. Stir in carnation milk. Return to neat boil. Remove from heat and add 1 tsp vanilla.

A couple of thoughts
--The first time I made this there was a trial and error period. I made this last month for our Lasagna Meal and didn't have any trouble.
--It stores easily in a container in the refrigerator. For the Lasagna meal I had it a day ahead and warmed it up in the microwave to serve that evening.
