Chocolate Fudge Sauce

This hot fudge sauce is easy to make and yummy.  Leftovers can be heated in the microwave.  Serve over ice cream or make a brownie sundae.

Yield: 2 cups

4 oz unsweetened chocolate
3 tablespoons sweet butter
2/3 cup water
1 2/3 cups granulated sugar
6 tablespoons corn syrup
1 tablespoon rum

Melt chocolate and butter slowly in heavy saucepan. Meanwhile, heat water to boiling. When chocolate and butter have melted, add water and stir well.
Add sugar and corn syrup and mix until smooth. Turn heat up and stir until mixture starts to boil. Adjust heat so mixture is just maintained at boiling point. Allow sauce to boil without stirring for 9 minutes. Remove sauce from heat and cool for 15 minutes. Stir in the rum. Serve warm.
