    Bayhill's Note:

    This warm, silky sauce is perfect over ice cream or pound cake. Be sure to use "sweet" baking chocolate, not semisweet or unsweetened.

      Ohhhhhhhhhhhh MY GOSH!!!!!!!!! What more could a chocaholic want? This sauce is truly divine! Rich, creamy, silky smooth, and so fantastic. I followed everything as per recipe, although I did use the microwave to melt butter and chocolate. So easy to make and the sauce is to die for. Just like a chocolate fudge sauce. I served with French Vanilla Ice Cream and it what just perfect. The family adored it but there is one downfall to this recipe ..... I am having problems with DS eating what I have left in the the spoon! Can't blame him it is so delicious and fudgy cold as well...... ummm and how do I know you ask? Well ummmm ......ssssshhhhh...... It's my secret !!!! Thanks Bayhill, I won't forget this one, and if I do I am sure DS will remind me!!!
