1 cup heavy cream

4 tablespoons unsalted butter

1/3 cup packed light brown sugar

1/3 cup light corn syrup

Pinch of kosher salt

8 ounces bittersweet or semisweet chocolate (or a combination), chopped

1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1 tablespoon vanilla extract


  1. Combine the heavy cream, butter, brown sugar, corn syrup and salt in a saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium heat, whisking. Add the chocolate and cocoa powder, reduce the heat to low and cook, whisking, until the chocolate is melted and the sauce is smooth, 1 to 2 minutes.
  2. Whisk in the vanilla. Let cool 10 minutes before serving. To store, let cool completely, then cover and refrigerate up to 2 weeks; reheat before serving.
