Vanilla Chocolate SauceA decadent chocolate sauce with a hint of vanilla. Use this on your favorite desserts and don't be afraid to be generous... if you're going to MAKE your own chocolate sauce, you might as well treat yourself.
Follow these easy steps to make it happen:
*Bring 2 cups of water to a rolling boil in double boiler.
*Add 2 Cups Semi-sweet Chocolate Chips in the top container followed by 1/4 Cup of Light Corn Syrup. Mix both ingredients until the chocolate chips are completely melted.
*Next, add the last 3 ingredients: 1/3 Cup of Whole Milk (or half and half), 2 tsp of Vanilla Extract, and 1 Tbsp of Unsalted Butter. Keep stirring until the butter dissolves and all the sauce has an unified consistency.
Your sauce is ready to be served! You can freeze or refrigerate this sauce to be used again and again!
Too sweet for your preference? Mix it up! Use dark chocolate instead.
Want a thicker sauce? Use less milk or add more chocolate chips.
Experiment with this because chocolate sauce is hard to screw up so go ahead and add your own touch to it :)... but please don't go too crazy. I mean you don't want to substitute fish stock for the milk or add parsley in there... Let's keep it a dessert?
