Yield
6 servings (serving size: 2 cake slices, 1/3 cup raspberries, and about 2 tablespoons sauce)

An easy, versatile chocolate sauce dresses up store-bought pound cake for a simple dessert offering. For a festive fondue dessert, substitute an orange-flavored liqueur like Triple Sec for the coffee-flavored one (or omit the liqueur altogether), and dunk fresh orange sections, dried apricots, marshmallows, or pretzel rods into the sauce. Or make this as a topping for reduced-fat ice cream.

How to Make It

Heat milk in top of a double boiler over medium heat. Add chocolate to pan; cook 2 minutes or until smooth, stirring constantly. Stir in sugar, corn syrup, liqueur, and vanilla; cook 2 minutes or until smooth, stirring constantly with a whisk. Serve with pound cake and raspberries.
