Easy Chocolate Fudge Sauce

2 TBS butter
1 c. whipping cream (or Half & Half)
1 tsp vanilla

12 oz. semi-sweet chocolate pieces

Place butter, cream & vanilla in small heavy saucepan & warm on medium heat until butter is melted. Stir in half the chocolate chips, stirring constantly until melted. Add remaining chocolate, continuing to stir until smooth & creamy. Add additional cream by tablespoon amount if necessary. (Careful, added cream may "pop" when it hits the hot sauce.)

Pour into serving bowl & allow to cool.

This is wonderful for dipping strawberries or drizzled over a brownie sundae. The sauce hardens if used over ice cream, but stays soft & smooth for dipping or topping.

Easy enough, and sounds tasty. Just the thing with strawberries to cap that romantic meal.

I tried this sauce and used it as a topping for cake and ice cream balls.

Crumble a chocolate and white marble cake in use the crumbs to thoroughly coat a scoop of good real vanilla bean ice cream that is slightly soft. If it's too hard, the crumbs won't stick to the ice cream. Re-freeze the cake/ice cream balls.

Serve the sauce over thses babies and WATCH OUT!!
