  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


  • Add the cream and sugar to a medium size sauce pot and bring to a light boil over medium-low heat.
  • Add in the chocolate, turn the heat to low and immediately whisk until the chocolate is mixed in and the sauce is smooth.
  • Serve.


Chef Notes:
  • To Reheat: Place your desired amount into a small saucepot and heat over low heat while stirring until it has thinned out into a sauce consistency.  Likewise, you can reheat in a microwave-safe bowl until it reaches that same consistency.
  • Make-Ahead: You can make this chocolate sauce up to 3-4 days ahead of time.  Keep it cool and covered in the refrigerator until you would like to serve it, and simply reheat it.
  • How to Store it: Place covered in the refrigerator for up to 7 days, do not freeze.
  • When cooling in the refrigerator the sauce will become like a thick ganache and is delicious if wanting a little scoop to serve with fresh berries.
  • You can also substitute the heavy cream for half and half if you want a little thinner less fattening sauce.
  • Do not worry if when adding the chocolate the sauce is still really thin, it will thicken once the chocolate begins to incorporate into the hot cream.
