“This is sublime, and always a hit with dinner guests. To cut down the fat/calories, use water instead of milk, and eliminate the chopped chocolate. Warning: it won't be as rich or as luscious if you do this! After you dish out the ice cream and pour on the sauce, I also suggest adding some freshly grated orange zest on top. Your guests will love it!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a medium-sized saucepan, combine sugar and cocoa, then whisk in milk, then chopped chocolate.
  2. Turn heat to medium and cook, whisking constantly, for 5 minutes.
  3. Remove from the heat and stir in remaining ingredients until sauce is smooth.
  4. Serve either chilled or warmed, over vanilla ice cream.
  5. Store in the fridge, but this sauce will keep well in the freezer if your batch won't be gone within a week or two.
