Chocolate Sauce

A wonderful sauce to serve with vanilla ice cream
 or over profiteroles, or for dipping strawberries
 and sliced bananas.
It's a luscious warm chocolate sauce.
Here's what you'll need; 
butter, Karo syrup, chocolate, sugar 
and a can of Hershey's syrup. 
 Melt the butter and unsweetened chocolate
 in a saucepan.
 Stir in the sugar, then 
 stir in the Hershey's syrup. 
 Add the Karo syrup. It's the secret that keeps the 
chocolate silky and from getting hard when
 poured over the ice cream.
 Heat and stir until the sugar is dissolved.
You may need to taste it here. 
Serve warm over ice cream. 
Cool a bit, then store in jars.
You can give one as a gift, 
if you can part with it. 
Better to double the recipe so you'll have
plenty to give. Just fill small jars and decorate
the tops with a scrap of fabric or doilie on the
cap...just hold on with a rubber band and tie
a piece of ribbon around it. Attach a label.
Ice cream before.
Ice cream after.
I wasn't fast enough with my camera
the first time!
