Homemade Fudge Sauce

Happy Saturday!  I have a new obsession.  One word.  Netflix.  Have you ever watched the TV show Drop Dead Diva?  Well, I am sucker for cheesy, lighthearted shows and this one is that.  Another one of my current obsessions is this fudge recipe.  Growing up my Mom would make this and I remember eating it by the spoonfuls.  When I was back in Texas a few weeks ago I was craving this and opened up Helen Corbitt's Cookbook {1957}.  I hope you enjoy this as much as I do! 

Fudge Ingredients:

1/2 cup butter
2 1/4 cups powdered sugar
5 oz evaporated milk
6 squares bitter chocolate


Set up your double boiler and add all the ingredients to the top pot.  Allow mixture to melt over the hot water for 30 minutes.   Here's the awesome part, do not stir.  Just let it sit...




After 30 minutes start stirring.

Isn't it beautiful?

If you can contain yourself and not eat it all, this would make a great gift {you will be sooo loved}. Just make sure you refrigerate it after your done.  Now the best way to eat this is by first getting the perfect vanilla ice cream.


 Yummmm!!!


Now start pouring the fudge sauce.

Maybe a little bit more.


Ok, maybe a little bit more.

Ah, perfect!

Hope you have a great rest of your weekend!

  2. Your picture looks like 4 squares - Should it be 4 squares rather than six?
