Chocolate Dessert Sauce

Photo by:

Serve this sauce warm or cold over a variety of desserts. For best results, use a 70 percent dark chocolate. Good with ice cream, profiteroles, and poached fruit.

Yield: Makes 1–2 cups

INGREDIENTS
  • 8 oz (225g) bittersweet chocolate, chopped
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • ¼ cup golden syrup
  • 3 drops pure vanilla extract

Directions

1. Place all the ingredients along with 2 tbsp water into a small saucepan and heat gently, stirring, for 6–7 minutes, or until smooth and glossy.

Variation: Chocolate and Coffee Dessert Sauce

For a more sophisticated chocolate sauce, add 5–6 tbsp strong black coffee, 2 tbsp brandy, and 1–3 tbsp confectioner's sugar, to taste.

Notes

Prepare ahead: Store the sauce, covered, in the refrigerator for up to 1 week; reheat gently.
