This sauce is a recipe that has been sittin’ around in my cupboard for years. It’s a classic, timeless perfect chocolate sauce. It’s so purrrfectly chocolatey so to satisfy the cravings of your choc-o-holic needs, but not too rich for those who are *gasp* not inclined toward the chocolate things of this world. You will still be wrapped around this sauce’s little finger. Top it on your ice cream. Top it on your cheese cake, make banana splits, or bottle it up and give it to your friends. (you will be soo popular). I mean, do I really need to tell you all the ways to eat chocolate. I didn’t think so.
The best part is (ok maybe eating it is the best part..), this is SOO easy. 4 simple ingredients! If you don’t have a dessert planned, or a last minute get-together spontaneously happens to walk through your door, the likelihood that you have these ingredients in your pantry are expectionally good. In fact, I did. I had a hankering for something sweet, but all I had was plain ‘ol vanilla ice cream. I stirred this up, and my kids and I all devoured banana splits. Weirdly enough I even had marshino cherries in a jar. Now who has those in their cupboards? I dont know. I must of had a recipe I needed them for right? OR I’m just weird.
