Why buy chocolate sauce from a can when it's so easy to make from scratch? Mix up this dessert recipe in less than 30 minutes.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup butter, cut up
  • 1/4 cup buttermilk or 1/4 cup milk and 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 5 ounces bittersweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
  • 1 cup whipping cream or heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup light-colored corn syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Directions

  1. In a heavy medium saucepan, combine sugar, and cocoa powder. Stir in butter and buttermilk. Add bittersweet chocolate. Cook and stir over medium heat until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth. Stir in whipping cream and corn syrup.
  2. Cook and stir over medium heat for 4 to 6 minutes or until mixture just boils around edges. Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla. Cool slightly. Serve warm over ice cream. (Cover and chill any leftovers for up to 3 days. Sauce may also be frozen in a freezer container up to 1 month. Thaw before serving. To reheat sauce in your microwave oven, allow 60 seconds on high power for each cup, stirring once.) Makes about 3 cups sauce.
