Bittersweet Chocolate Sauce

Bittersweet Chocolate Sauce


  • 10 ounces high quality bittersweet chocolate (66%-70% cacao), coarsely chopped
  • 3 teaspoons Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum
  • 1 to 1 1/4 cups half-and-half
  • granulated sugar to taste


  1. Combine the chocolate and Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum in a heatproof bowl.
  2. Add 1 cup of half-and-half.
  3. Set the bowl over a pan of simmering water and stir frequently until chocolate has melted and is smooth. If it begins to curdle, add a little more half-and-half and some sugar.
  4. Remove from heat. Let cool.
  5. If the sauce isn't sweet enough for you, add in sugar a teaspoon at a time. If the cooled sauce is too thick, stir in more half-and-half a tablespoon at a time.
  6. Serve over ice cream.
