Grandma used to make this on Sunday nights, it is the best! Even if you are usually not a big chocolate lover, you will LOVE this.

This was good but I found it needed another ounce of baking chocolate to make it less sugary and more chocolatey. But this was personal preference as my husband and I both prefer dark chocolate over light/milk chocolate. Ate it over homemade brownies, vanilla ice cream, and fresh whipped cream. Definitely goes in the category of foods that are worth getting fat for.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat medium sized sauce pan at medium heat.
  2. Put chocolate and butter into the pan, melt.
  3. Mix sugar into butter and chocolate mixture.
  4. In a separate bowl, beat eggs with a few tablespoons of milk.
  5. Stir egg mixture into chocolate sauce as fast as you can!
  6. Don't take too long because the eggs will scramble-mixing half of the egg mixture in at a time makes it easier.
  7. Add enough milk to dissolve the sugar and make a smooth sauce.
  8. Use more than called for, if necessary.
  9. Add salt and vanilla.
  10. Enjoy!
  11. Store left overs in the fridge for up to a week.
  12. You may be tempted to eat it out of the jar!
