Margaret's Chocolate Sauce

We had some friends over for Memorial Day and they brought a very yummy homemade chocolate sauce.  She said I could post it on my blog to share with anyone who is interested.  It is much better than Hershey's by a long shot!

1 cube butter
1  (12 oz.) can evaporated milk
2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips

Melt butter and chocolate chips.  Add evaporated milk and powdered sugar.  Bring to a boil and then simmer for 6 minutes stirring constantly.  Remove from heat.  Tastes great over ice cream!

Cost Analysis:  $2.60 total for the recipe.
16 servings or 17 cents per serving compared to store cost of 22 cents per serving

Chocolate chips -  87 cents
Evaporated milk - 94 cents
Margarine - 21 cents
Powdered sugar - 58 cents

I got my powdered sugar for 69 cents for the bag so it only cost 23 cents, just to show that if you can shop well, you will spend much less.  I also used real butter I got for $1.98, or 50 cents for the cube.  Overall my cost was a little cheaper than Walmart prices.

Do you have a recipe you would like to share?  Link up and share so we can try it!
