A good cake, brownie, cookie, or ice cream can stand alone.
But putting this easy chocolate sauce on top makes any of these desserts even better.
Easy Chocolate Sauce
This sauce is inspired by my mom. I have countless memories from childhood of my mom miraculously whipping up a homemade chocolate sauce from a bag of chocolate chips. Whatever the dessert, my mom made it extra special with her homemade chocolate sauce.
Now, she works that same magic whenever her granddaughters are over.
When I say this is the easiest chocolate sauce, I mean it.
With four ingredients, a saucepan, and a whisk, you can make a gourmet sauce that puts any store-bought chocolate topping to shame.
I wish I could say that we shared all that dessert with our neighbors, friends, and family.
But we didn’t.
We managed to devour every last brownie, mini cake, and drop of sauce ourselves.
Make This Easy Chocolate Sauce!
We’ll try to be healthier this month.
But if I end up making this sauce again, all bets are off.
A Few Things!
This chocolate sauce thickens at room temperature. To warm it up and thin it out, simply reheat the sauce in a saucepan over medium heat for a minute or two.
Any leftover sauce can be stored in the refrigerator. To reheat, simply microwave the sauce in a microwave-safe dish in 30 second increments, stirring between each increment.
If you’re looking for a good whisk, I love my Berglander stainless steel gold whisk. It works great and it’s stylish. You can find my favorite Berglander stainless steel gold whisk set on Amazon [aff. link], or in my Amazon store here.
Easy Chocolate Sauce
- 1 cup chocolate chips, milk, dark, semi-sweet, whatever your preference
- ½ cup heavy cream
- 1 Tbsp corn syrup
- 1 tsp vanilla
Make the chocolate sauce on the stovetop
- Add all the ingredients to a saucepan. Turn the heat on to medium.
- Whisk continuously until the chocolate chips melt and everything comes together in a smooth, thick mixture, about 3-5 minutes.
- Taste the chocolate sauce. If it’s warm, it’s ready to serve. If you’d like the sauce warmer, continue whisking over medium heat for another minute or two.
