Chocolate sauce for all the family

chocolate sauce

Ingredients

  • 200 ml whole milk
  • 200 ml cream
  • 100 grm butter
  • 500 grm good 60% chocolate

A delicious chocolate sauce and so easy to make. It can last two weeks in the fridge, works for dark and milk chocolate and sure to be a hit. Perfect as a topping for ice-cream, meringues and summer fruits. Also works as a topping on any cake as a dessert. If you prefer a dark chocolate sauce follow the same steps using the recipe below but substitute 400gms good dark 70% chocolate and add 100 grm sugar (added to milk, cream and butter and bring to boil).
