A basic chocolate sauce is made using the ratio: 7 parts chocolate 4 parts heavy cream 2 parts butter if you make a chocolate sauce using the 22.75 oz of chocolate that you have on hand, how many oz of the other 2 ingredients should you use with it? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I divided 22.75 by 7 which gave me 3.25 I then took 3.25 x4 and got 13 oz cream then 3.25 x 2 and got 6.5 oz for cream. Is this correct? Last edited by skipjack; December 2nd, 2016 at 04:50 AM.

It would help to know how many ounces are in the heavy cream and butter.
