Simple Chocolate Sauce

What could be simpler than chocolate melted with the liquid of your choice? Adjust the balance of sweet and thickness by adding liquid or chocolate.



  • 6 ounces SCHARFFEN BERGER 70% Cacao Bittersweet Chocolate coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 cup low fat milk or water as needed
  • 2 tablespoons sugar


    1. Melt the chocolate with the milk and sugar in a small heavy saucepan over low heat. Stir constantly, without letting the mixture simmer or boil, until all ingredients are melted and the sauce is smooth. Add additional milk or water, as needed, to adjust the consistency of the sauce.

    2. Serve over ice cream, pound cake, or fruit. Sauce can be stored covered in the refrigerator for about 2 weeks and reheated in the microwave or in a heatproof bowl set directly in a pan of barely simmering water.
