Cool Chocolate Sauce
This recipe makes a great alternative to a hot, fudgy sauce. It is meant to be served after it has cooled completely to room temperature, so don’t be surprised if it is thin when warm. It will thicken upon cooling.
NotesSTORAGE: Refrigerate any leftover sauce covered with plastic wrap. Bring the sauce to room temperature before serving again. For advance preparation, store the sauce the same way. Reheat the bowl of sauce over a pan of simmering water, stirring occasionally, then cool it to room temperature before serving.
