Chocolate Fudge Sauce

How is this for a Banana Split? My kind of comfort food. Every mouthful is just sinful, rich and disgustingly fattening. Bananas, Vanilla Ice Cream, Cream, Toasted Peanuts and of course, the richest most delicious chocolate fudge sauce to top it off. As you can see I love rich food. I am not obese, nor am I an over indulger but these kind of treats just make life a bit sweeter. MMMMMmmmmmmmmmmm
Chocolate Fudge Sauce
  • 400 grams of a good quality dark Chocolate, chopped
  • 2 cups of Cream
  • 40 grams of Butter, real butter no substitutes
  • 1 teaspoon of Vanilla Bean Paste

Pop your cream and vanilla bean paste into a heavy based saucepan. Bring up to the simmer and take of the heat. Then add your butter and chocolate. Stir until the chocolate and butter has all melted through. You should have a thick, glossy, smooth mixture.

Suggestions for other use, great on cupcakes, fabulous as a hot chocolate base - just add warm milk, perfect on top of a pavlova, great for using with fresh strawberries. The possibilities are endless. So Easy :)
