Recipe Tips for Making Ice Cream Sundaes with Melted Chocolate Chips and Wine

  • Can I make the chocolate sauce with milk chocolate chips instead of semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips?
  • Can I make the chocolate sauce ahead of time?
  • If I don’t have sweet red wine, can I still make this recipe? \
  • Can I double this recipe?

    Any type of chocolate chips can be used to make the chocolate sauce, as preferred.

    The chocolate sauce can definitely be made ahead of time. It will set up as it rests; just prior to serving it, place the chocolate sauce into the microwave using the defrost setting a few seconds at a time liquefy the chocolate sauce once more.

    If you need to use a more dry red wine to make the chocolate sauce, increase the sugar from 1/4 cup to 1/3 cup, then do a taste test to see if more sugar is needed.

    This recipe can easily be doubled – just make the sauce in a deep skillet. This is a great recipe to make if you need to serve a large group.
