5-Minute Chocolate Sauce

Courses: Dessert, Sauces
Serves: 2 people

Recipe Ingredients

3/4 cup 177mlLight cream
8 oz 227gSemisweet or bittersweet chocolate - coarsely chopped
2 tablespoons 30mlUnsalted butter - cut small pieces

Recipe Instructions

In a medium-size saucepan, warm the cream and chocolate over very low heat, stirring occasionally to smooth. When the chocolate is completely melted, 5 or 6 minutes, remove from the heat and whisk in the butter.

Mix in any of the optional flavorings listed below, and serve. Store the sauce in a clean, tightly covered jar. Reheat the sauce right in the jar, in a saucepan of hot water, with the lid loosened. Refrigerated, this will last for at least 2 weeks.


Chocolate Mint Sauce -- Whisk 2 tablespoons white crème de menthe into the sauce with the butter.

Mocha Sauce -- Heat the cream first, whisking in 2 tablespoons instant coffee powder. Add the chocolate and proceed as above. When the sauce comes off the heat, whisk in the butter and 2 tablespoons coffee liqueur.
