2 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 c. butter
4 c. sugar
2 c. evaporated milk
1 t. vanilla extract
1/8 t. salt
1. In a large saucepan, combine the chocolate chips and butter. Cook and stir over low heat until melted.
2. Gradually mix in the sugar and milk. Increase heat to a boil. Cook, stirring constantly, for 8 minutes. Remove from heat, and then stir in vanilla and salt. Serve warm. Store in refrigerator.
This would be 1/3 of it, and there was plenty.
We also bought a Christmas tree and put it up a month and a half before Christmas. (Yes, we would be some of those people.) In our minds, it's a justified decision seeing as we'll be gone for Thanksgiving and the time around Christmas. We are putting off buying ornaments until after Thanksgiving though... if that makes it any better! Yay for the holidays!
