Chocolate is revered in my family. My aunt gets a Whitman’s sampler for Christmas every year. My mom keeps a bag of Hersey’s miniatures in her kitchen at all times. My 88-year-old grandmother refuses to quit eating it.
That’s why Jane Sauce holds a special place in the family cookbook (which does not, in fact, exist yet). It’s a recipe that’s more than 60 years old, but we’ve actually only been making it since 1998.
