This ultra silky, easy chocolate sauce recipe does double duty as fondue! Made with just chocolate and heavy cream (with a touch of vanilla and salt), it comes together in minutes. Drizzle the sauce over ice cream, or serve it as fondue with your favorite fixings for dunking. It’s the ultimate easy dessert.
Easy chocolate sauce recipe
This easy chocolate sauce recipe is a total game changer. Instead of melting chocolate with cream in a saucepan or in the microwave – which results in a thick, often goopy texture – the sauce is made in a mini food processor. The result is the creamiest, silkiest, lightest chocolate sauce ever!!
How to make this easy chocolate sauce:
- Place coarsely chopped dark chocolate (I prefer 70% cocoa content) in a mini food processor, then process until finely chopped.
- In a small pot, bring heavy cream, vanilla and salt to a boil. Pour the hot cream over the chopped chocolate in the food processor, then process until smooth. Done!
