Chocolate Coconut Sauce

prep time: 10


  • 1/2 cup well-stirred canned cream of coconut
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened chocolate, chopped fine
  • 3/4 teaspoon coconut extract, or to taste
  • 1 dash salt
  • 1 tablespoon Malibu or other coconut-flavored rum if desired


In a heavy saucepan whisk together the cream of coconut and the heavy cream, bring the mixture to a simmer, and whisk in the chocolates, whisking until they are melted and the sauce is smooth. Whisk in the coconut extract, the salt, and the Malibu and serve the sauce warm or at room temperature over ice cream.
