Good base recipe, but I made revisions per several reader suggestions, so it isn't fair to rate this recipe, but wanted to share...end result was more than excellent! I doubled the recipe to take to an ice cream social. For double the recipe: I used 2 sticks of butter, 4 C sugar, 1.5 C cocoa, one can evaporated milk, filled the empty can with half and half, 1 tsp. salt, 2 tsp. cornstarch, added extra vanilla, 'cuz I love it! I sifted all the dry ingredients together, before mixing with wet. Boiled for about 10 minutes or so, it was pretty smooth already from me sifting dry ingredients, but used my immersion blender when finished boiling. It was SOOOO good! Very smooth. Didn't taste one bit like caramel, due to the extra cocoa. It was a HUGE hit. People couldn't keep their spoons out of it and several asked for the recipe. Thank you Sue and thank you readers for the great suggestions!
