Paula Deen's Hot Fudge Sauce

This is the Mauck family's new obsession, as Diane has recently gotten hooked on all things Paula Deen, and made several batches of this delectable, addictive sauce for her kids. Paula serves it on homemade chocolate cake, but we keep a jar in the fridge and heat some up and spoon it on top of vanilla ice cream about every other night!

1 (4-ounce) bar German chocolate
1/2-ounce unsweetened chocolate
8 tablespoons (1 stick) butter
3 cups powdered sugar
1 2/3 cups evaporated milk
1 1/4 teaspoons vanilla

Melt the 2 chocolates with the butter in a saucepan over very low heat. Stir in the powdered sugar, alternating with evaporated milk and blending well. Stirring constantly, bring the mixture to a simmer over medium heat. Simmer until the mixture becomes thick and creamy, about 8 minutes. Stir in the vanilla. Serve slices of cake topped with warm fudge sauce.
