Salted Butter Chocolate Sauce

If you can’t get salted butter, most salted butter has about ¼ teaspoon of salt per 4 ounces (115g), so you can use that as your guide.

1 cup (250ml) whole milk or half-and-half
6 tablespoons (3 ounces, 85g) salted butter, cubed
1/4 cup (45g) packed light brown sugar
8 ounces (230g) bittersweet or semisweet chocolate, chopped
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Scant 1/8 teaspoon sea salt
1. Heat the milk, butter, and brown sugar in a saucepan until it begins to steam.

2. Remove from heat and add the chocolate, vanilla, and salt, stirring gently until the chocolate is melted and the sauce is smooth.

Serve the sauce warm with ice cream, or cool it to room temperature and store it in the refrigerator for 1 to 2 weeks. Rewarm the sauce by putting the jar in a pan of very hot water.
