Mom’s Hot Fudge

¼ cup butterIMG_5947
2 squares unsweetened chocolate, chopped (although Mom doesn’t)
¼ cup cocoa
¾ cup sugar
½ cup evaporated milk
pinch salt
1 tsp. vanilla

Melt the butter with the chocolate in a small saucepan on low. Meanwhile, mix the cocoa with the sugar in a small bowl. When the butter and chocolate are melted, add the cocoa/sugar mixture, and mix thoroughly. Then add the milk and salt, stirring well. Raise the heat and bring the sauce to a boil for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Off the heat, add the vanilla.

Note: this keeps in the fridge indefinitely, and freezes too. So I always triple the recipe. Why triple? Because what can a person do with a leftover half a can of evaporated milk? A triple recipe uses the whole can.
