3 Cups orange flavored Tang

2 Cups chocolate syrup

1/2 Cup pureed anchovies

2/3 Teaspoons butter

Mother used to serve this on cold Winter nights. We’d all sit around, commenting on our day and trying to impress father with our gopher impersonations. Mother’s cooking will always have a special place in my heart and my lower intestinal tract, but that’s another story entirely. I hope this recipe becomes as beloved to you as it is to me and maybe one of these days I’ll post Mother’s onion lemon brownies. Yum!:)
