ISO Chocolate sauce recipe
I'm looking for a recipe for chocolate sauce (e.g. to dress fruit) that contains sugar, water, unsweetened chocolate, and maybe anything else--but not corn syrup or milk.
Anyone have any ideas or personal knowledge?
4 oz Semi-sweet Chocolate*, chopped
3 fl oz Liquid**
3 tablespoons Butter, cool, in small pieces
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
1. Melt chocolate in the microwave using 30 second bursts and stirring between bursts.
2. Stir in the butter.
3. Stir in the liquid and vanilla.
*You can use bittersweet but may have to add sugar. I can see no reason why you couldn't use white chocolate if you like.
**Liquid can be water, coffee, milk, cream, liqueur, fruit brandy or even whisky, etc..
You could also add Loran flavor oils (a drop or two). Raspberry, orange or almond liqueur and a drop or two of the corresponding flavor oil will make a very nice, bold sauce.
eLizard, I'd love the Liebovitz recipe. I've been using this CI recipe, which has corn syrup:
3/4 cup heavy cream
3 tablespoons light corn syrup
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
6 ounces bittersweet chocolate
Bring cream, corn syrup, butter & salt to boil in small saucepan over med-high heat. Off heat, add chocolate & swirl. Cover pan & let stand until chocolate is melted. Uncover & whisk to combine.
i've got one that's like a chocolate syrup. it's easy to thicken up as well... it's dairy free and uses cocoa powder as a base... you could thicken with unsweetened chocolate and some extra butter...
