Late night treat

I just finished a bowl of ice cream with hot chocolate sauce.

It is very simple to make and takes only a few minutes. Pour some semi-sweet chocolate chips into a Pyrex measuring cup. You can fill the cup halfway – more or less – it does not matter.

Then, pour in enough whipping cream (or half and half) to almost reach the top of the chips. Put the measuring cup in a microwave and turn it on for 20 seconds.

Take it out and stir the mixture slowly. It won’t look quite right. It will still have some lumps.


Put the cup back in the microwave and give it another 20 seconds. Take it out and stir it slowly until it is smooth. Pour and spoon it over some ice cream. Enjoy.

Put some plastic wrap over the top of the measuring cup, refrigerate it and save the rest for tomorrow night. You can heat it up again and it will be just as good. This is so much easier than buying a big can of chocolate syrup because you can make just the amount you want.

Chocolate chips are a staple item at my place -- always on hand.
