Yield: 2 servings

4 ounces chocolate chips, about ½ cup

½ cup half-and-half or heavy cream

Place chocolate chips in a small bowl. Heat half-and-half or cream until very hot but not boiling (it’s OK to boil the heavy cream). Pour half-and-half or cream into bowl with chocolate, allow to stand 1 minute and stir until smooth and uniform in color. Set aside for 10 minutes or so before pouring over ice cream. If sauce is too thick to pour, stir in a little more hot cream.
