A Gift from Your Kitchen! Bittersweet Chocolate Sauce

4 1-oz unsweetened chocolate squares
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 cup water

Stir chocolate squares, sugar, and butter together in a medium saucepan over low heat.  Stir constantly until well combined. Whisk in water until sauce is smooth.  Spoon into a pretty jar.  Decorate with small ornaments or personalized labels.  This has all of the anti-oxidant benefits of dark chocolate and is low in fat. 

This delicious topping is the perfect topping for ice cream, pound cake or as a dip for fruit.

Yields approx. 1 cup   (from Mature Living Dec. Magazine)
