Chocolate Sauce from Great Grandma Mary James

My Great Grandma passed away right after I turned 2 years old. I am so glad that I have this recipe of hers.

Chocolate Sauce

2 squares unsweetened chocolate
4 1/2 TBSP butter
1/3 cup hot water
2 TBSP Karo light corn syrup
1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
Pinch of salt
1 tsp vanilla

Melt chocolate and butter over low heat, stirring constantly. Add water, syrup, sugar and salt. Cook for 3 minutes, boiling very slightly while continuing to stir. Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla. Serve hot over ice cream. Store remaining chocolate in refrigerator. To reheat, add a bit of water and heat in the microwave.
