Hi Lindtooth,
Welcome to DC. I happen to live near the Lindt chocolate factory where they also have an outlet shop! Yes, always the temptation to drop in. I would suggest that you melt your chocolate slowly with about 1/3 extra of single cream. So, for 100grs of chocolate add about 30grs of cream. Stir as it melts together and don't let it get too hot. you can add a little more as you go and see if it is the thickness that you want. You could also add some brandy or rum if you want a grown-up sauce instead or as well as the cream but that is up to you.

Menu maker has it correct. But be careful of how much liquid you add to your sauce.

Technique:
Place heavy cream into a double boiler, or metal bowl suspended over simmering water and heat to 110' F. Break the chocolate into small pieces, or chop. Add it slowly to the hot cream, stirring to help melt and distribute the chocolate. Continue adding the chocolate until your sauce is smooth and cream. Taste it. Now take a tbs. or so and sprinkle just a little salt on it, just half a dash. Stir that in a cup to dissolve the salt. Taste that. If you like it better with a touch of salt, add some to the pot, a little at a time, and stir it in. When it tastes right, you're done. Enjoy.

You can also add Nuttella hazelnut spread to you sauce as well, or raspberry, or orange extract. Yum.

For another layer of chocolate goodness, sprinkle chocolate nibs onto your ice cream.
