  • •2/3 cup heavy cream
  • •1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • •1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
  • •1/4 cup unsweetened natural cocoa powder
  • •1/4 teaspoon salt
  • •6 oz 2/3 cup fine-quality bittersweet chocolate chips
  • •2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • •1 teaspoon vanilla


  • Bring cream, corn syrup, sugar, cocoa, salt, and half of chocolate to a boil in a 1 to 1 1/2-quart heavy saucepan over moderate heat, stirring, until chocolate is melted. Reduce heat and cook at a low boil, stirring occasionally, 5 minutes, then remove from heat. Add butter, vanilla, and remaining chocolate and stir until smooth. Cool sauce to warm before serving.


Can be made a week ahead of time. I stored mine in a glass jars (two 8 ounce jars) and kept in the fridge. Just reheat before serving.
