Knock Your Socks off Chocolate Sauce

This is a sinfully delicious recipe for chocolate sauce. I had to bribe, barter, and steal to get this "top secret" recipe from a chef I worked with while attending college. He refused to use canned chocolate sauce and always made this recipe when he worked.

Now this is a sauce that I could go on eating & eating & eating ~ ABSOLUTELY GREAT, & I've added it to my Holiday Gift Ideas cookbook for later in the year! Definietly worth keeping both the recipe & the sauce around, you know, for that small chocolate fix now & then! Thanks for sharing!
