Hot Chocolate Sauce for Ice Cream


  • 2 cups of light brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons of chocolate
  • 1/2 cup sweet milk
  • butter size of a walnut
  • vanilla


Take the sugar, chocolate, milk, butter. Boil until it forms a soft ball when dropped in cold water. Do not beat. Flavor with vanilla and let it stand a moment, pour the sauce on ice cream in the dishes just before serving.

Maple sauce is made the same way substituting maple sugar for the brown and omitting the chocolate. Caramel sauce is made by browning sugar in a hot skillet until it melts and smokes and then adding the sweet milk and butter and cooking to soft ball stage. Minced nuts may be sprinkled over the sauce on top of ice cream.
