Gram's Chocolate Sauce

This is an adopted recipe that I have not yet tried. The original chef comments: "One of my best friends gave this to me years ago. Simply put, it is the very BEST chocolate sauce I have ever had. I love it on top of good quality vanilla ice cream with some chopped salty roasted almonds on top. Try it; it will give you a chocoholic buzzzzzzzzz"


  1. In microwave or very gently on stovetop using low heat, melt butter and chocolate together.
  2. Remove from heat if using stove top just before it is completely melted and stir until it is smooth.
  3. Stir well and add 1/2 cup powdered sugar.
  4. Continue to stir and add the rest of the sugar until it's well blended- you may not need the entire cup of sugar.
  5. It will look awful!
  6. Now, slowly, slowly, stir in the cream.
  7. Keep stirring and it magically turns into a velvety concoction.
  8. Add the vanilla and stir.
  9. Serve.
  10. NOTE: refrigerate the left overs if there are any, but when you re-heat it, put it in the microwave for about 2 or 3 seconds at a time and stir, stir, stir- be careful or it will separate- if this happens, you can add a little more sugar and cream to bring it back to the right consistency.
  11. Servings yielded is completely subjective--.

Very tasty! I followed the recipe exactly and had to add extra sugar and cream but it's a very good recipe. I suggest using a double boiler because I kept it on the stove on low and whisked A LOT and the consistency was perfect. I made it to go over ice cream and "Whatever Floats Your Boat" Brownies #32204. I had to have 2nds. This is a "lick your bowl/plate clean" recipe! Thanks!

My father-in-law was here last night and he is an ice cream lover! So... I just had to make this chocolate sauce. It was so good! Very rich and so tasty! I made the recipe exactly as written and it was perfect. This will become a staple in our household, especially in the summer "ice cream" months! Thanks Julie!
