I just tested it this evening. Well, actually...I mixed it up and made Larry test it against a jar from a full batch. He says it's fine. I've reached 24% of my weightloss goal and DBCS just doesn't fit into the game plan right now.
1/4 C pure cane sugar
3 oz (6 TBL) evaporated milk
2 tsp water
3 TBL Karo
3 oz 70% bittersweet Belgium chocolate
2 oz 54% semisweet Belgium chocolate
1/4 C (2 oz) Plugra butter, slightly soft and cut into pieces.
In a small heavy pot add the water, evaporated milk, sugar, and corn syrup. Over medium low heat, stir and bring to simmer, then cook for 2 minutes to completely dissolve the sugar.
In a separate bowl, melt the chocolate over simmering water.
Using a small strainer, strain the sugar/milk liquid over the melted chocolate.
Stir until the chocolate is incorporated.

Then slowly stir in the butter chunks. Be sure the chocolate is not too hot or the butter will liquify before being emulsified into the chocolate blend.
Makes 1 1/4 cups of sauce.
