  • 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.

Serve and enjoy!


The sauce will thicken as it comes to room temperature. Simply turn the heat back on to medium under the saucepan to reheat the sauce and make it thinner.
Store leftover chocolate sauce in the refrigerator. Reheat the sauce in a microwave-safe container in 30 second increments, stirring between each increment, until the sauce is the desired temperature and thickness.
Serve this sauce over my Katharine Hepburn Brownies or my Audrey Hepburn Chocolate Mini Cakes.
