This recipe is quick, delish and a very simple sauce to create!  It comes from one of my daughter’s friends, Alyssa, who made it for us when she was still in high school.  It takes only about 5 minutes from start to finish and is pretty much fail proof.

We have a friend, Jeff, who likes it so much, that he makes it and eats it by the spoonful.  I wouldn’t recommend that, but I would suggest that it is yummy on ice cream, cookies with ice cream, and on brownies (with ice cream).  My quickest dessert is to take chocolate chip cookies (from my freezer), top with ice cream, then pass the sauce.  I love to watch people pour a second dollop half way through their cookie treat.  It is what my grandson would call “lick-a-licious”!

Here are the ingredients:

100B1000

¼ c. butter (don’t substitute margarine)

2 squares unsweetened bittersweet chocolate

¾ c. sugar

Pinch salt

Over low heat, melt the chocolate and butter, stirring often.

Return to the burner at medium heat.  Add milk, stirring constantly, taking it to a consistency that you want.  (I tend to make a little on the thin side)

100B1170

Once you have the right thickness, cook for one minute more over medium low heat, stirring constantly.

Remove from heat and add 1 t. vanilla and a pinch of salt.

Taste– to be sure that it has enough salt.  Then taste it some more ’cause — well just because. (I think that you will understand why.)

Are you brave?  Try adding cayenne pepper while still warm, or after cooled, add bits of sea salt.

You will have a new taste sensation.  (Just so you know — most just like it plain)

To reheat, simply place in microwave at half power for a few seconds. It heats quickly, so “babysit” it to be sure not to overheat.
