This sauce is rich, thick, and so delicious. It received our highest rating.
1 cup heavy whipping cream
3/4 cup sugar
8 ounces unsweetened chocolate, finely chopped
1/3 cup corn syrup
1/4 cup unsalted butter
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon salt
How to Make It
Combine whipping cream and sugar in a heavy saucepan. Place over medium heat, and cook, stirring constantly, until sugar dissolves. Stir in chocolate, corn syrup, and butter. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until chocolate melts and all ingredients are blended. Remove from heat; stir in vanilla and salt. Let cool to room temperature. Transfer sauce to jars with tight-fitting lids. Store in refrigerator. To serve, spoon sauce into a microwave-safe bowl, and microwave at HIGH for 20-second intervals or until pourable.
I'm thinking of making this for Christmas presents. Will this keep out of the refrigerator? How long? Thanks for any advice!(I haven't made this yet, but there's no way to ask a question without leaving a review that I see...)
Oh my goodness...yummy! I took the advice of the reviewer below and stirred in the chocolate after taking the pan off the heat. I did not have unsalted butter, so dropped the 1/8 teaspoon the recipe called for. Also, I used bittersweet chocolate instead of unsweet...helped that it was an excellent chocolate. I doubled the recipe, since this is for a gift...would definately make again!
