Here is another mouth watering recipe for an icecream topping.Hot Chocolate/Marshmallow Topping.---In a large microwave safe bowl place 1( 12 oz. )pkg. simi-sweet chocolate chips and 1 cup evaporated milk. Microwave on high for about 3 minutes. Stir. If chips haven't melted yet, microwave another minute. Stir until fairly smooth,then add a 7oz. jar of Marshmallow Fluff. Stir again. Microwave 1 minute. Stir until well blended. If needed,microwave 30 seconds more. Add 1 teaspoon vanilla and mix well. Pour into glass jar with wide mouth. Refrigerate until ready to use or use now. Microwave in jar(lid removed) to reheat the chocolate sauce. This is delicious!! Judy in Alabama--ps: I use the empty Marshmallow Fluff jar to store my sauce in. It will fill nearly two of those jars.
