Killer Chocolate Sauce

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.

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.

    Oh my. I am imgining this with a little Scharffen Berger goodness.

  3. 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…

    • Wendi says:

      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?

  4. Jen W. says:

    I like your style, Wendi. Eating melted chocolate or sauce straight from the bowl is one of life’s great pleasures.

  5. Between BAH and D4T, I think I’ve found my new religion. For you both shall never lead my palate astray.

    • Wendi says:

      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!

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

    • Wendi says:

      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.
