Grandma Elizabeth's Chocolate Sauce

Grandma Elizabeth passed this recipe on to her daughters. The dog has nothing to say about chocolate sauce as it is poisonous to dogs. But the dog's family LOVES this rich, dark sauce over vanilla ice cream. Add bananas, whipped cream or pecans and it might just beat chocolate chip cookies. It is very easy to make.

Grandma Elizabeth's Chocolate Sauce

In a small sauce pan, over low heat, melt and stir together:
2 squares unsweetened chocolate (Bakers)
6 Tablespoons water

1/2 cup white sugar (or a little less, if you like)

Cook until bubbly and thick. (If you cook it longer, it will turn chewy when it hits the cold ice cream. Not bad but...) Remove from heat.

Stir in:
3 Tablespoons butter
1/2 teaspoons vanilla
