Today I’m sharing our family favorite recipe for this simple chocolate sauce!  This sauce is an absolutely perfect compliment to ice cream and/or cake… especially buttery pound cake! 

We have also been known to serve this dip alongside a fruit tray.  We sure enjoy dipping strawberries, bananas, and pineapples slices into this chocolate sauce for an extra decadent afternoon or game day snack!



How to make a simple chocolate sauce.

All you need to whip up a batch of this delicious chocolate sauce are five little ingredients: semi-sweet chocolate, butter, sugar, evaporated milk, and vanilla extract! It comes together in just minutes on the stovetop, and if you are really in a pinch for time, you could make this in the microwave for an extra speedy preparation.

It also stores for a couple of weeks in the refrigerator… but in my experience, it rarely lasts that long! 


The holidays will be here in a snap, and a mason jar full of this luscious sauce is an inexpensive and delicious gift to give from your kitchen!

My Favorite Simple Chocolate Sauce

Recipe by Marcelle at A Little Fish in the Kitchen Course: DessertDifficulty: Easy


Cooking time




  • 2 oz semi-sweet chocolate (4 squares from a chocolate baking bar)

  • 2 tablespoons salted butter

  • 3/4 cup sugar

  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

  • 3/4 cup evaporated milk


  • Melt chocolate squares and butter in a small sauce pan over medium heat
  • Once butter and chocolate are melted, stir in the sugar and mix well. Add in the evaporated milk and use a whisk to combine all the ingredients to a smooth consistency.
  • Bring the chocolate mixture to a boil. Allow to boil for 1-2 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove the pan from the heat. Transfer to a storage bowl or a mason jar and allow it cool for 20 minutes. Sauce will thicken slightly as it cools.
  • Serve over ice cream or cake and enjoy!
