Did you happen to notice in the picture of the Mini Bittersweet Chocolate Cheesecake that the serving plate was gently kissed with chocolate sauce? No? Click that link above and take a look. There, did you see it in the corners? That, my friends, is Killer Chocolate Sauce. What the picture didn’t show is how we spooned that sauce on the top of our cheesecakes for a D4T Double Threat. Ok, maybe it was more like piled on top.
And that chocolate streaked dish up there? That’s what happens when you leave a batch of Killer Chocolate Sauce on the table and three good friends spend an hour, or two, dipping spoons, forks, and fingers in for just one more taste. That’s all that was left. Do you need any more evidence that this is some seriously good stuff? I can sum it up in two little words – Abby Dodge.
You’ve heard me talk about Abby here. Or if you’re new to BAH thanks for stopping by and you should ask the Googly about Abby. This is another Desserts 4 Today recipe with which you need to acquaint yourself…stat. Now if you’ll excuse me, I think I can get just one more taste out of that bowl before it hits the dishwasher.
Killer Chocolate Sauce
Adapted from Desserts 4 Today by Abby Dodge
BAH Note: I scaled the recipe down by half because exposure to mass quantities of Killer Chocolate Sauce is hazardous to my relationship with the skinnier jeans. I call this 3 Minute Killer Chocolate Sauce because that’s how quick it is to make…just in case you needed still one more reason why this recipe rocks.
- 3 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped or chips
- 2 ounces butter
- 1 tablespoon light corn syrup
Combine the chocolate, butter, and corn syrup in a small nonstick sauce pan. Cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, until the chocolate is melted. Whisk until the sauce is completely smooth. Serve warm or at room temperature. If the sauce sets up and thickens, or if you cover and refrigerate it, reheat it in the microwave in 30 second intervals on low power.

I could totally go for some of this on top of vanilla ice cream for breakfast. I’d get the shivers for only a nibble.
Brooke, should I tell you have a tub of KCS sitting in my fridge? No, I probably shouldn’t. That would be cruel.
Oh my. I am imgining this with a little Scharffen Berger goodness.
Jennifer, do you have a nanny cam in my kitchen or something? Because I used a happy blue bag of Scharffen Berger Bittersweet to make KCS.
Oh Wendi–this is not what I needed to see after I got into a bunch of Theo chocolate last night. And I’m supposed to be “eating clean” for the marathon now…
Did you say Theo chocolate Beth? I have my last bit of Theo (salted caramels) stashed away in the fridge. That is some seriously good chocolate. Now that you’ve planted the seed in my head, I may have to try and make a batch of KCS with some Theo Chili Spiced Chocolate.
Did you find it locally or did you have to order it online?
I like your style, Wendi. Eating melted chocolate or sauce straight from the bowl is one of life’s great pleasures.
Jen, I encourage everyone to eat this straight from the bowl. Utensils only get in the way ; )
Between BAH and D4T, I think I’ve found my new religion. For you both shall never lead my palate astray.
Ali, I can’t make promises about everything I post on BAH but I completely guarantee that you can not go wrong with Killer Chocolate Sauce. Hope you’ve been discovering all sorts of D4T happiness.
Haha I love that clean bowl shot. Reminds me of my late night leftover Christmas cookie snacking I did last night!
Elizabeth, sometimes the best food shots are the “after” photos.
I make a version of this…and it’s one of the most deadly things in my arsenal.
My hips…they know this all too well.
Amy, chocolate sauce is a powerful weapon. It definitely belongs in the Weapons of (M)ass Destruction category ; )
Yum! Love that picture 🙂 I’ve seen this recipe in D4T, but hadn’t tried it yet. It’s quickly moving to the top of my list.
Jen, this gem is quick, easy, and fantastic. I can’t recommend it enough. If you happen to have any leftover, it can be stashed in the fridge. It will harden but very easily reheats in the microwave or even sitting out at room temp for a bit.
