Ingredients
  

  • 1 cup butter
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 12 oz evaporated milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

Instructions
 

  • Combine butter, cocoa, sugar, and evaporated milk in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Heat mixture until boiling. Continue to boil for 7 minutes.
  • After 7 minutes, remove from heat and immediately stir in chocolate chips and vanilla. The chocolate chips should melt and the mixture should be smooth.

Notes

If for some reason, you have trouble getting the sauce to a smooth consistency, you could put it in the blender and whir it around in there for a few seconds. This will smooth out any lumps. I would not recommend reheating the sauce because the chocolate will burn very quickly.
