Easiest Chocolate Dipping Sauce Ever

I'm hosting a dessert party this coming Sunday, and I created this chocolate sauce for strawberries, bananas, and pound cake. Basically, I wanted a fondue but without the flame, since there will be small children present. This chocolate sauce fits the bill nicely, staying fluid at room temperature and taking only a couple of minutes to put together. The butter is optional but adds a velvetiness and gloss to the sauce.

Easiest Chocolate Dipping Sauce Ever
Makes approximately 3/4 cup

1/2 cup good quality chocolate chips or chopped chocolate (I like semisweet chocolate but I think dark chocolate would work nicely too; milk chocolate might be too sweet)
1/4 cup 2% milk
1 tablespoon butter (optional)

Combine chocolate and milk in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave on high for one minute. Remove and whisk until well-combined and smooth. Add butter and stir until butter is melted and chocolate sauce is smooth.

This was a great dip... if I hadn't doubled and used just a little to much milk. Therefore, mine was runny.
