Decadent Chocolate Truffle Sauce Recipe


This Decadent Chocolate Truffle Sauce is smooth, rich, and creamy, just like a chocolate truffle. Itís quickly made in the microwave, and contains only 4 ingredients. How easy is that? Everyone will think it took hours to make.
ĒĒ
Just a few notes about chocolate: itís best if you use the highest quality chocolate you can find and afford, preferably with a high (60% or higher) cocoa content ( I use Lindt Excellence Dark 70% Cocoa). There are several brands readily available (such as Lindt and Callebaut) that are excellent. Restaurant supply and specialty stores usually carry several premium brands of chocolate. Chocolate chips may be used in a pinch, but make sure they are of the highest quality without extra additives. While there are several good brands on the market, I always avoid Nestleís brand because it seems to have more additives that the others. Since this sauce relies on creamy rich chocolate, the kind you use really does make a difference. Milk chocolate contains extra ingredients and isnít suitable for this sauce.

Decadent Chocolate Truffle Topping can be served warm over ice cream, but it also can be served at room temperature because it doesnít get too thick. It is a great all-purpose chocolate sauce and can be used for any dessert.

Decadent Chocolate Truffle Sauce


Makes about 3 1/2 cups
2 cups chopped semi-sweet or bittersweet chocolate
2 cups heavy cream
2 tablespoons butter

  1. Measure the chocolate and heavy cream in a microwaveable container.

  7. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.
