Utterly Decadent Warm Chocolate Ganache Sauce

One of the most simple and decadent dessert sauces I know of ~
and it's so simple to assemble. Fair warning though, it can be addictive!

Wonderful for sundaes, parfaits, profiteroles, a drizzle for pound cakes, as a fruit dip, etc.

You can flavor it with different liqueurs to change the flavor if you like. Sauce will thicken
as it cools.


1/2 cup whipping cream
2 tablespoons light or dark corn syrup
6 ounces bittersweet chocolate or semisweet chocolate, chopped

In a heavy medium-size saucepan, bring cream and corn syrup to a simmer; remove from heat; Add chocolate; whisk until melted and smooth; Pour into a small container and refrigerate until ready to use; When ready to use heat slightly to soften the chocolate until it is the consistency you prefer.
