Bittersweet Chocolate Sauce

More bitter than sweet, this intense chocolate sauce is the perfect pairing for your next ice cream sundae or atop a scoop of homemade chocolate ice cream.

Game plan: To reheat the sauce, cover it and microwave for 1 minute. Remove from the microwave and stir until completely melted.
