* PLUS Cooking time: 3 minutes


  • 180 g bittersweet or semi-sweet chocolate
  • 250-mL container 35% cream , about 1 cup
  • 2 tbsp seedless raspberry jam

  • Finely chop chocolate. Place in a large bowl. In a medium-size microwave-safe bowl, stir cream with jam. Microwave cream mixture, uncovered, on high, stirring halfway through, until boiling, from 2-1/2 to 3 minutes. Or place mixture in a small saucepan.

Homey touches make a special meal memorable. Try something as simple as topping a store-bought dessert with decadent, homemade chocolate sauce. Ours uses only four ingredients. It goes beautifully with Sophisticated Raspberry Semifreddo (also in the Recipe File) or serve it over ice cream or fresh fruit.
