christmas gifts part 3: chocolate sauce
this is supposed to be a secret recipe but, since i'm posting it on the internet, i think that just went out the window. i'm not positive where this recipe originated from but i got it from my mom and let me tell you, it's pretty legit. i'm not a huge ice cream person and i almost always choose caramel over chocolate sauce but i'd eat ice cream just to have this sauce (tough life, right?) so, my gift to you—internet, is this recipe...
2/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
2/3 cup butter
1 cup whipping cream
1 cup chocolate chips
1 teaspoon cornstarch mixed with 3 teaspoons water (this is a new addition of mine to make it slightly thicker)
in medium saucepan, combine brown sugar, butter and whipping cream.
bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. reduce heat;
simmer 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. add chocolate chips; stir
until melted and smooth. add cornstarch mixture, mix well. serve warm
over ice cream or dessert.
