  1. In a saucepan on very low heat, carefully melt the chocolate and butter, stirring constantly. Add the corn syrup, sugar, and milk. Increase heat to medium-high, bring to a boil, and cook for 5-8 minutes, stirring only occasionally, until the mixture becomes a candy-like, gooey fudge. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Let chill to spreadable consistency.

This was a good hot fudge recipe. But I do have to say that this definitely not a fluffy frosting recipe. It is more like an ice cream topping. But very good otherwise.

I followed the recipe exactly as it was directed, but mine didn't turn out good. I can't use it bec it didn't taste good.

We found this frosting to be somewhat bitter. The Karo Syrup and only 1/2 cup sugar just didn't make it sweet enough.

Do NOT overcook this recipe! I thought I could maybe make it more frosting-like rather than heavy syrup, but I ended up with a wonderful "Tootsie Roll" type candy instead. I managed to unload so...
