MeMama's house was a place where we gathered a many a time to be loved dearly, and to love dearly.. She was my husbands mother, and lived till she was 91. On Saturday night get-togethers , at times she would head to the kitchen to make her special chocolate syrup,then slather it all over a bowl of vanilla ice-cream for each of us.. the love cooked right in… a treasured sweetness all down through the years…and we her daughter-n-law's now do the same, thank you, MeMama.. for our precious husbands ,who are what they are through the mothering they knew, what a Godly heritage !!!
Take a 2 quart saucepan at least ,to allow plenty of room for the coming to boil stage. Measure into it, and stir together the sugar and cocoa, then add the milk, and karo syrup .
Bring to a boil,over medium heat ,stirring constantly, adjusting your heat lower as needed to keeping it lightly boiling , while not letting it boil over, then you can stir occasionally, letting it boil gently for 15 minutes.. ( MeMama always said till it cooks down a little :)-
Remove from heat,and add the vanilla,stirring well, then let it cool slightly in the pan while you ready the bowls of ice cream ( we used vanilla) …then spoon it on… and enjoy.
