- 8 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
- 6 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- Pinch of coarse salt
Set a large heatproof bowl over (but not touching) simmering water. Add chocolate, butter, sugar, cream, and salt to bowl and cook, stirring, until melted and well combined. Let cool. If sauce firms up too much before using, microwave for a few seconds to soften.
