Basic Chocolate Sauce
Semisweet baking chocolate
Melt chocolate in a double boiler. Stir in butter, then boiling water, then sugar and salt. Cook stirring occasionally, for 15 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.
The sauce is best when served warm. Either serve immediately or reheat in double boiler for 10 minutes or microwave for 1 minute. To store pour into strilized glass jars. Allow sauce to cool before refrigerating. It will keep for 6 months in the refrigerator.
