This lusciously rich fudge sauce is great at home or make a batch, put it in pretty glass jars, tie a ribbon around the neck and give as a delicious gift.
1 cup whipping cream
3/4 cup granulated sugar
8-oz unsweetened chocolate, chopped fine
1/3 cup clear corn syrup
1/4 cup butter
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
dash of salt
In a heavy saucepan combine the cream and sugar. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the sugar is completely dissolved. Stir in the chopped chocolate, corn syrup, and butter. Lower heat to medium-low and cook, stirring occasionally, until the chocolate is completely melted and ingredients are blended. Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla and salt. Allow sauce to cool to room temperature then pour the sauce into a jar with a tight-fitting lid and store in refrigerator. Or as suggested above, pour into small jars with tight-fitting lids, decorate with a pretty ribbon and a label to give as gifts.
To serve: Spoon into a microwave-safe bowl and microwave at 15 second intervals, stirring after each, until sauce is pourable.
