Desserts, sauces, rich chocolate sauce 1 Desserts, sauces, rich chocolate sauce 2

6 ounces fine-quality bittersweet chocolate (not unsweetened)

½ cup heavy cream

1 tablespoon sugar

 


 

1. Chop the chocolate and transfer it to a bowl. In a small saucepan, bring cream and sugar just to a simmer, stirring until sugar is dissolved, and pour over chocolate. Stir mixture until chocolate is completely melted.

2. Sauce can be kept, chilled in an airtight container, 1 week. If desired, reheat sauce in a metal bowl, stirring occasionally, over a saucepan of simmering water. Serve hot or at room temperature.

 

NOTE: Sauce can be a topping for ice cream or fruits like strawberries, bananas or pears. It can also be used in a chocolate fondue.
