As we have mentioned in many of our recipes on this blog, we love desserts and especially homemade ice cream. This recipe for homemade chocolate sauce is super easy to make and is the perfect topping for so many different desserts. We have used, with great success, this chocolate sauce as topping for our grilled bananas with vanilla ice cream, our coffee ice cream or our old fashion pancakes. It only takes two ingredients to make this delicious sauce, some chopped dark chocolate and some heavy cream. You simply just heat up the heavy cream in a sauce pan and add the chocolate and let it melt while stirring - it's that simple and it only takes about 15 minutes! We always try to avoid buying processed food at the supermarket, especially when the homemade version is simple to make like this chocolate sauce. Processed food normally contains a long list of different additives that are used to enhance taste and extend shelf life, which in some cases can be necessary, however, we always try to avoid it. Next time you are at the supermarket try flip over the chocolate sauce and check out the ingredients list and keep in mind this recipe for chocolate sauce only has two different ingredients.
