Ingredients

1 cup whipping cream
1/3 cup light corn syrup
1 cup (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
1 to 2 tablespoons dark rum (optional)
1 teaspoon vanilla

Preparation

  1. Place whipping cream and corn syrup in heavy 2-quart saucepan. Stir over medium heat until mixture comes to a boil. Remove from heat. Add chocolate chips, rum, if desired, and vanilla; stir until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth. Cool 10 minutes.
  2. Serve chocolate sauce warm or pour into clean glass jars and seal tightly. Store up to 6 months in refrigerator. Reheat sauce over low heat before serving.

Gift Idea

For an elegant presentation, pour the sauce into a 12-ounce six-sided or smooth-sided jar. Affix a ribbon to the middle of the jar with craft glue or double-sided tape, and attach the gift tag or make a label (be sure to include directions for storage and use). For an extra-special gift, include assorted fruit or and unfrosted cake, such as angel food or pound cake, with the sauce.
