Chocolate sauce doesn't get any simpler or more delicious than this! Wonderful rich chocolate flavor; very versatile. I keep a batch in my fridge and use it for all kinds of desserts. Thanks, PetitFour!
Fool proof! Like Carla said in another review, I was looking for a simple chocolate sauce that didn't require a lot of ingredients. I used this for a dessert fondue sauce and it was delicious.
This is an excellent recipe. As previously stated, simple and elegant. In my search for a chocolate sauce I was hard pressed to find a recipe that didn't ask for butter, salt, vanilla, water or corn syrup.. basically everything but Chocolate! I used Callebaut Belgian Dessert Chocolate as I consider it to be one of the best. You can also add a bit of Godiva Chocolate Liqor to this sauce for a more sophisticated flavor.
This is classic, elegant, and decadent. I really can't add anything to what the other reviewers have said. It's simply superb. (We've served it over chocolate crepes [Chocolate Dessert Crepes] with bananas, with pears, with strawberries... as well as over ice cream and cake.)
When I started browsing for an 'el primo' chocolate sauce recipe I expected there to be lots of steps, multiple ingrediants, double boilers etc etc... This is so easy and is the perfect ratio of cream to chocolate so the sauce comes out kind of fudgy. Thanks for making me look like an expert with so little effort. I served it on good quality vanilla ice cream which I had mixed through with crushed up honeycomb bars. Reaheats really well in the microwave.
