Decadent Chocolate Sauce (and its easy to make!)

Oh joy . . . Valentines day is almost here again! Valentines day for me represents the one day each year when all I want to do is overload on chocolate. I can make it through Halloween and Christmas nashing on stuff here and their, but Valentines Day demands a chocolate coating . . . so I guess I started a little early this year. Sometimes a girl just needs it! Like today while I was out and about running errands. My lil' SUV just pulled into one of my favorite bookstores . . . and I left with a John Grisham (I have read EVERYONE of his books . . . my mom got me hooked long ago . . .) and a book by one of the greatest authors ever: Shannon Hale. Everything that she writes is awesome! If you don't know who she is check her out. Her books are kind of aimed at young adults or teens but all the same everyone that I know loves her!
My mom and sisters and I are total bookworms and are the ones who line up in the wee hours of morning to pick up our pre-ordered copies or who stay up all night racing to see who can finish first! (Can we say Harry Potter and Twilight addicts . . . yep!) Reading is my reward for getting homework done too! (Yes sometimes I totally cheat) But I left my Mutti's last with a pile to read including some of my new favs! Gideon Biddle, The Secret Journal of Brett Colton, Goose Girl, Crispin, and more! I have to admit . . . I do prefer reading to eating chocolate. (Okay that was a one time confession!) Hey but this chocolate sauce is super easy and is SUPER d-lish! Decadent Chocolate Sauce
Recipe by: Emily
3/4 cup Chocolate chips, Real or Semi-sweet
1/4 cup butter
2/3 cup Sugar
2/3 cup Evaporated milk
1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract

1. Mix all of the ingredients together in a sauce pan and bring to a boil. Lower heat to medium low and continue cooking for about 7-8 minutes stirring to prevent burning. Serve over ice cream, cake, brownies, whatever! Enjoy

Oh my my...that would be delicious over your German Chocolate Brownies! I know what I'm making this weekend because my Valentine chocolate tooth has kicked in as well!

I wish it were just Valentines that chocolate made its addicting move into my life. (Sigh)> Oh well. the calories are worth it. My motto this holiday season: I heart chocolate.

Thanks for sharing such a decadent recipe.

XOXO
