Easy Chocolate Sauce – Just 3 Ingredients

This chocolate sauce is delicious over ice cream, pound cake or served with fruit.

Ingredients

  • 4 oz. bittersweet chocolate broken into pieces. I used 60%.
  • 1/3 cups heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Instructions

Melt chocolate in a double broiler. I used a medium saucepan with about 3 inches of water in it and heated it on medium high heat. I then placed a Pyrex bowl on top of the pot. It is very important to not let the water boil or get into your chocolate mixture.

After the chocolate pieces have melted, add the vanilla and heavy cream and mix well.

Take the bowl off of the heat.

My mom would whip up this chocolate sauce when I was a little girl. She would make it specifically for vanilla ice cream and we considered it such a treat. Envision the best hot fudge sundae that you ever had – and this sauce is better than that! We felt so special when she would make it for us.

Here’s what you need:

I started with 4 ounces of dark bittersweet chocolate…
