Sarah’s Favorite Ice Cream Sundae Sauces

Always screaming for ice cream….and now that summer is almost knocking at our door soon, I expect these sauces not to last long.   But chill any leftovers, and reheat in the microwave before pouring/spooning into scoops of your favorite ice cream.  Love the marriage of frozen ice cream and hot toppings.

CHOCOLATE SAUCE
1 cup (6 ounces) bittersweet chocolate chips

1/3 cup water
2  tablespoons sugar

1 tablespoon light corn syrup
Place chocolate chips in a medium bowl; set aside. Combine water, sugar, and corn syrup in a small liquid measuring cups.  Microwave for 2 minutes, stir well until sugar is dissolved.   Pour hot sugar mixture over chocolate; stir gently with a wire whisk until smooth.
STRAWBERRY SAUCE
1 pint fresh strawberries, washed, hulled, and sliced
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon cornstarch
few drops of red food coloring
Combine all ingredients in a saucepan and let stand for 5 minutes.  Cook to boiling, then reduce heat, and let simmer, stirring occasionally, for 2-3 minutes or until thickened.
