Two-Ingredient Chocolate Sauce or Frosting


IMG_5577

As with most of what we do in life or in the kitchen, no number of “recipes” can replace willingness to work hard, take risks, and be willing to “fail”.  Frequently I will serve fresh fruit and chocolate dipping sauce for the kids (big and little).  Nothing fancy…Hershey’s syrup and cut fruit.  They gobble it up!  But last week, I was out of chocolate sauce – GASP!  This recipe was really a shot-in-the-dark-turned-gold.  I grabbed some whipping cream and chocolate chips and went for gold on the stovetop.  It made a great dipping sauce while warm!  And, after a few hours, I returned to a cooled product resembling the best frosting ever.  My only advice on this recipe is to use the chocolate you like best.  The first time I did this, the chocolate was nothing special – Nestle morsels.  It was as good as it could be.  But replace Nestles with some Cadbury Special Dark and it’s something much finer!

Two-Ingredient Chocolate Sauce or Frosting

1 cup heavy whipping cream
1 cup chocolate chips or your favorite chocolate, chopped

In a saucepan over medium-low heat, heat cream until scalded but not boiling.  Remove from heat, whisk in chocolate or chocolate chips until smooth.  While this mixture makes a beautiful sauce when warm, as it cools it makes a gorgeous frosting.  It even holds up to piping.

Stores well in refrigerator, if it lasts that long, for 7-10 days.

Eat Well!
