Rich Chocolate Fudge Sauce

This recipe was a standby of my childhood. My favorite thing about it, besides the rich chocolatiness, is the way it slightly hardens and becomes chewy when chilled by the frozen delight underneath it. Of course, it's a perfect addition to frozen or fresh fruit or ice cream, but we once also tried dipping pieces of crusty French bread into it for some "pain au chocolat," and it was marvelous. Enjoy the magic!
