A delicious sauce for drizzling on top of cakes, ice cream, or just straight out of the jar. Also great to use in ice cream cakes.

  1. Melt the chocolate and the butter in a double boiler.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients and cook over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until the sugar is completely dissolved and the sauce looks smooth and glossy. (I estimate this takes me about 7-10 minutes from the time the chocolate is fully melted.)
  3. Cool, and then transfer to 4 one-cup or 2 pint Mason jars or other airtight containers. Store in the refrigerator and reheat gently when ready to serve.
