This chocolate sauce is my new favorite simple dessert! It’s so easy to make, but it feels so indulgent and delicious on top of a scoop of ice cream!


1 cup red wine

1 cup finely chopped California prunes

1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

3 tablespoons coconut sugar

Pinch of kosher salt

6 tablespoons chocolate chips (milk, semi-sweet or even vegan works!)


In a medium sauce pan, add the red wine, chopped prunes, balsamic vinegar, coconut sugar, and pinch of kosher salt. Stir to combine. Turn on heat to medium high and bring the sauce to a boil. Once boiling, reduce temperature to low let it cook for about 25 minutes, or until sauce has reduced its liquid almost completely. Turn off heat and add the chocolate chips. Stir to combine.


Add this lovely mixture on top of your favorite ice cream flavor. So chocolaty and delicious!


Note: To gently reheat later, be careful not to burn the chocolate. Put it in a non-reactive bowl that is balanced above simmering water, not touching, in a saucepan.
