1, 2, 3 Chocolate Sauce

This chocolate sauce is synonymous with my childhood summers, Christmases, or Spring Break. Basically, any time we went to visit my maternal grandparents on their farm. It was a nightly ritual that after dinner the 5 gallon bucket of Schwan’s vanilla ice cream was retrieved from the cellar, placed in the kitchen sink, & various family members would arrive throughout the night to visit, joke, laugh, & play cards. Someone would inevitably man the stove to create the sauce & one by one, we’d scoop out our ice cream & drizzle with the 1, 2, 3 sauce.


  • 1 12oz can of evaporated milk
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3 oz. unsweetened baking chocolate


Add & stir together all ingredients in a medium size sauce pan. Cook over medium heat until it comes to a boil; then reduce temperature to low. Cook for 5 minutes more, stirring constantly. Enjoy!

    Angie I so appreciate your recipes and stories! We had a similar ice cream ritual with grandparents, though only on weekends we traveled back to the farms to see them. Happy memories.

      Thank you, Leigh Ann! The older I get, the more these childhood recipes mean to me. I’m compelled to write them down, securing not only the recipes, but the memories too.
