28 days til Valentine's Day

Chocolate Sauce
to warm and pour over ice cream in a sweet heart shaped pitcher bowl (featured above)

12 oz semisweet chocolate, cut into pieces 
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup light corn syrup
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1 tablespoon strong liquor, such as rum, or liqueurs such as Grand Marnier or brandy (optional)

Place the chopped chocolate in a medium sized stainless steel bowl and set aside.

Combine the cream, sugar, and corn syrup in a saucepan and place over low heat. Bring to a boil, stirring often. 

Remove from heat and pour immediately over the chocolate.  Let stand until the chocolate has melted, then stir until smooth.

Stir in the vanilla extract and alcohol, if using.

Store the sauce in the refrigerator in a tightly covered container for up to two weeks. Reheat over simmering water before serving.

Makes about 2 cups. Preparation time 15 minutes.
