This heavenly chocolate sauce transforms a simple bowl of ice cream into an irresistible treat. Use a double boiler to gently melt the butter and chocolate. Take care that the top pan does not touch the simmering water in the bottom pan.

Ingredients:

  • 12 Tbs. (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, cut into
      pieces
  • 2 oz. unsweetened chocolate, coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 cup sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract

Directions:

In the top pan of a double boiler set over but not touching gently simmering water in the bottom pan, melt the butter and chocolate, stirring until smooth.

In a small bowl, stir together the cocoa, sugar and salt. Add to the chocolate and stir to combine. Add the cream, increase the heat to medium-high and bring to a boil over rapidly simmering water, stirring to blend. Remove from the heat, let the sauce cool for a few minutes and then stir in the vanilla. Let the sauce cool until warm or room temperature before serving.

Use the sauce immediately, or cover and refrigerate for up to 3 days. Reheat gently over low heat. Makes about 2 cups.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rich and Easy! I've never been satisfied with my recipes for chocolate sauce until a friend recommended I try this one. It yields quite a bit of sauce and I've used it on ice cream, pies, brownies and crepes. For a more grown-up twist, try adding a tablespoon or 2 of Grand Mariner.
