Ingredients for Homemade Chocolate Sauce

This Homemade Chocolate Sauce is so easy to make.

You will need heavy cream, butter, powdered sugar, semi-sweet melting chocolate or chocolate chips, vanilla extract and a pinch of salt! That is it! And you end up with amazing chocolate sauce!

Making Homemade Chocolate Sauce

In a medium sized saucepan, over medium heat, you will just add all of the ingredients. Whisk the ingredients together until the butter and chocolate is melted and smooth.

The Perfect Chocolate Flavor

The semi-sweet chocolate combined with the heavy cream and powdered sugar give it the perfectly sweet chocolate taste, unlike some other chocolate sauces that use cocoa powder and tend to be a little more dark chocolate tasting. This sauce is out of this world amazing and I know you will love it! For a chocolate lovers dessert, bake my Easy Homemade Brownies, top with vanilla ice cream and this Chocolate Sauce!

  1. Would you be able to freeze the sauce in small mason jars and then just let it defrost in the counter or fridge? Thx

      Hi CJ! The recipe has heavy whipping cream in it which doesn’t always freeze well. The sauce may separate when it defrosts but you can try it…. it won’t make you sick, the texture just may be off a bit! 🙂
