This recipe was in my husband's family for years. Momma, his grandma, made it alot. It's one of his favourite things. That's why he got cupcakes and chocolate sauce for his 60th birthday instead of a traditional birthday cake.
For the sauce you'll need:
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 oz unsweetened (or semi) chocolate squares
2 1/2 cups boiling water
3 tbsps. butter
4 tbsps flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup light corn syrup
1 tsp vanilla
Boil the water in a pot, then add sugar and chocolate and heat over medium heat until chocolate melts. Set aside.
In another pot melt butter and add the flour and salt using a whisk to blend. (like making bechamel sauce).
Slowly pour in the chocolate mixture, whisking as you do so as not to make a lumpy sauce.
Cook over medium heat for about 15 minutes. Remove from heat and add the syrup and the vanilla.
Pour over white cupcakes. Any cupcakes will do, but this is a good one to try.
In fact, this sauce would be good over chocolate cake too, or even on ice cream.
And here's the birthday boy.

I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!
