Old-Fashioned Hot Fudge Sauce
makes about 1 1/2 cups

1/4 cup butter (half a stick)
4 ounces unsweetened chocolate
2/3 cup boiling water
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/4 cup corn syrup
1/2 teaspoon salt

Melt the butter in a medium saucepan, then add the chocolate and melt over low heat. When the chocolate is melted, stir in the boiling water, sugar, corn syrup, and salt. Bring to a boil, stirring, then stop stirring and let it boil for six to eight minutes, or until it’s thickened and become glossy.

This will keep in the fridge for a week or so. Reheat over low heat on the stove, or on low power in the microwave, stopping frequently to stir.
