    Exclamation Melting choc question

    I have no cream to melt with my choc to go over some ice cream, can I use coconut cream instead?? It would be nice but would it work?? Do I use the same amount as normal cream??

    Why not do this:

    Chocolate sauce - Gordon Ramsay
    200g good quality dark chocolate (70% cocoa solids)
    30g unsalted butter
    3 tbsp clear honey
    125ml full fat milk

    For the chocolate sauce, break the chocolate into small pieces in a heatproof bowl. Place the bowl over a pan of simmering water and heat. Add the butter and honey stirring from time to time, until the chocolate begins to melt. Gradually whisk in the milk until you have a smooth sauce and warm through. Serve the cream-filled profiteroles with the hot chocolate sauce drizzled over.

    I would be worried about using coconut cream/milk as it contains a lot of water and splits very very easily.
