Rich Hot Fudge Sauce

Mmmm.... thick, chocolatey, fudgy goodness on a spoon. At least, that's how Mac eats it - skip the ice cream and all - just lick it off the spoon! We had this on ice cream with whipped cream and then in the morning on our waffles. Yum. I would say don't make any improvisations to this recipe - it's perfect just as is.

2/3 c. heavy cream
3/4 c. light brown sugar
1/4 c. white sugar
1/2 c. unsweetened cocoa, sifted
3 T. salted butter, cubed
1 t. vanilla extract

Put the cream, light brown sugar, sugar, and cocoa in a saucepan. Gradually bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Turn down the heat and simmer gently for 1 minute, stirring continuously. Stir in the butter and vanilla extract. Serve warm.
