Two-Ingredient Chocolate Sauce

IMG_5873.jpg

Here’s a recipe I almost forgot I had in my collection. This one is from way back in my culinary school days. A smooth as silk, ultra-fast to prepare sauce that turns a plain slice of cake into a work of art!

Chocolate Sauce

Ingredients:

4 ounces semi-sweet chocolate, chopped (or morsels)

2 1/2 ounces boiling water

Method:

Place chopped chocolate in a medium-sized mixing bowl. Pour boiling water over chocolate, just until you can see the water seeps through from underneath. Do not cover completely with water or it will be too runny. Whisk until all chocolate is melted and smooth, adding a bit more water if needed.

Use immediately or store covered in refrigerator. Reheat gently in a stainless steel bowl over a small pot of simmering water or on low in microwave until pourable consistency.

Note:

Add a dash of vanilla and a pinch of sea salt for a little flavor counterpoint. You won’t regret it.
