1/2 cup heavy cream

2 tablespoons unsalted butter

2 tablespoons packed light brown sugar

2 tablespoons corn syrup

Pinch of salt

4 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped

2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

2 to 3 tablespoons amaretto liqueur

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Amaretti or other Italian cookies, for dipping


  1. Bring the heavy cream, butter, brown sugar, corn syrup and salt to a simmer in a small saucepan over medium heat, whisking occasionally, until the butter melts and the sugar dissolves, about 3 minutes. Whisk in the chocolate and cocoa powder until smooth. Remove from the heat and whisk in the liqueur and vanilla.
  2. Transfer the sauce to a small bowl. Serve warm or at room temperature with cookies for dipping.
