Rich Chocolate Sauce
Makes about 1-3/4 cups sauce
|1||cup whipping cream|
|1/3||cup light corn syrup|
|1||cup (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips|
|1||to 2 tablespoons dark rum (optional)|
- 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.
- 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.
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.
