This very simple recipe comes from the 2005 cookbook, Get Saucy.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 8 ounces semisweet chocolate, coarsely chopped (or bittersweet)


  1. In a medium-size heavy saucepan, heat cream over medium heat until small bubbles appear around the rim, about 4 minutes.
  2. Turn off the heat & add the chocolate, letting it sit without stirring for 5 minutes.
  3. Using a whisk, stir sauce until chocolate is melted & thoroughly mixed into the cream.
  4. Let it cool a little before using.
  5. Will keep, tightly covered, in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
  6. It will thicken & harden as it cools, so reheat before using.
