Best ever chocolate sauce recipe

This is such a simple recipe, you'll use it time and again once you try it.

This is the old fashioned version... you can melt the chocolate in the microwave, but remember this... I didn't tell you that!!  If you heat chocolate too much, too quickly you ruin it.  So try the old fashioned version first...

Create a double boiler (the old fashioned way) by putting a small pot of water on to boil.  Find an oven proof glass bowl that will sit 'in' your pot.  Not all the way down, you want the heat of the boiling water on the bottom of the bowl, but you don't want to immerse the bowl in water.

Keep the inside of the bowl clean and dry.

Into this bowl chop 2 large Mars bars.  If you live in a country where you can buy Bar One bars, use those instead.  They're not as sweet. 

Stir the chocolate (it has fudge in it so makes a truly delicious topping) until it's smooth.  Slowly add cream, stirring all the time, until your sauce is smooth, glossy and will coat the back of your spoon.

Serve over a good vanilla ice-cream or chocolate cake. 

Wasn't that easy?  Wait until you taste it!
