Hot Fudge Sauce

8 ozs. semi sweet chocolate chips
10 T. butter
½ c. unsweetened cocoa powder
1 ½ c. sugar
¾ c. water
½ c. light corn syrup
4 t. vanilla extract

In a heavy saucepan, combine the chocolate, butter, cocoa, sugar, water and corn syrup.  Wisk over medium-high heat until the chocolate and butter are melted and the sugar is dissolved.  When the sauce just comes to a boil, reduce the heat to low and cook at a low boil for 8 to 10 minutes; the sauce will thicken as it cools.  Add the vanilla and stir to combine.  Store in refrigerator tightly covered.

From whence it came:  I'm not gonna tell ya!  Here's the deal.  I found this recipe in a cookbook, but I changed it and, in my opinion, made it better, so I'm going to take the credit for this one.  A teeny tiny bit of credit goes to that skinny lady who bakes really good cookies, but the rest of the credit goes to that not so skinny lady who writes this blog.  And that's all I'm gonna say about that!

Why it's blogable:
  Because it's the best hot fudge sauce I've ever tasted.  Oh, and it's so easy to make.  And did I mention that you can just eat it with a spoon?  I'm not saying that I'm speaking from experience, I'm just saying you can.  And if you make it, you probably will.  And if you don't, something is very wrong with you.  Seek help!  You have issues!  Maybe I'm the one with issues.  Either way, you've just gotta try this on ice cream.  Or with a spoon.  Now let's not go there again!

If death by chocolate sounds fun:  Make these brownies then top them with a scoop of ice cream and pour this fudge on top.  You'll die with a smile on your face!

Hope you enjoy stirring it up!
