    P4's Note:

    Classic chocolate sauce. Very rich, and wonderful, as long as you use good quality chocolate. You can modify it by adding a tablespoon of Gran Marnier, Baileys, or any other flavoring to jazz it up a bit.

      Chocolate sauce doesn't get any simpler or more delicious than this! Wonderful rich chocolate flavor; very versatile. I keep a batch in my fridge and use it for all kinds of desserts. Thanks, PetitFour!

      Fool proof! Like Carla said in another review, I was looking for a simple chocolate sauce that didn't require a lot of ingredients. I used this for a dessert fondue sauce and it was delicious.

      This is an excellent recipe. As previously stated, simple and elegant. In my search for a chocolate sauce I was hard pressed to find a recipe that didn't ask for butter, salt, vanilla, water or corn syrup.. basically everything but Chocolate! I used Callebaut Belgian Dessert Chocolate as I consider it to be one of the best. You can also add a bit of Godiva Chocolate Liqor to this sauce for a more sophisticated flavor.
