This luscious hot chocolate sauce is rich, thick, bursting with dark and milk chocolate as well as cream and golden syrup and is very versatile. It can be used in a range of different desserts for example: serve over ice cream, brownies, steamed chocolate pudding, poached pears, profiteroles or in a Banana Split.
Quick and easy to make, this sauce can be made and served immediately or you can make it in advance and gently re-heat before you serve.
How to make Hot Chocolate Sauce
Collect all your ingredients together:
fresh double/heavy cream
dark chocolate (minimum 70% cocoa solids)
sea salt (optional)
Make the Hot Chocolate Sauce:
You can either make this just before you serve the dessert, or make it ahead of time and re-heat when ready.
Break up the chocolate and add to a pan with the cream, golden syrup, vanilla paste and salt, if using.
Warm over a low heat, stirring from time to time, until the chocolate has melted and you have a luscious, thick sauce.
This sauce can be made in advance, which I normally do, and then re-heat it when you are ready to serve the dessert.
