Classic. Quintessential. Chocolatey. Good on everything, from your morning pancakes and coffee to ice cream and that cake you just made. Or ya know, by the spoonful. Just a spoonful of…I’ll let you sing the rest yourself. ;)
What is it? Chocolate Sauce! I’m sorry, come again? Chocolate Sauce!!!! I didn’t hear you!! CHOCOLATE SAUCE!!!!!!!! That’s right. Or chocolate syrup, as you prefer. No more Hershey’s in a bottle, or going without if you live outside the USofA. It’s so easy you’ll wonder why you never made it before. No high fructose corn syrup involved!
Recipe from my Mama
Makes about 1 1/2 cups
3/4 cup / 150g sugar
1/3 cup / 33g unsweetened cocoa powder
1 Tbsp / 7.5g cornstarch
1/2 cup / 118g water
1 tsp vanilla
Combine sugar, cocoa, and cornstarch in a small saucepan.
Add water and whisk until there are no lumps.
Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture boils. Reduce heat to low and boil for 5 minutes, continuing to stir.
Remove from heat and add vanilla.
The better quality your cocoa powder the better your sauce will taste!
Keeps well in the fridge.
