I'm not a fan of store bought chocolate sauce-it's much too sweet for my taste buds. So, when I heard a blogger sharing about homemade chocolate sauce, I thought why not? This recipe was SUPER easy...as in, done in about five minutes tops. It's very rich, and intense with flavor. If you like it sweet, you will probably want to add more sugar. ;-)
1 Cup Water
1/2 Cup Sugar
3/4 Cup Baking Cocoa Powder
1/4 tsp. Salt
1/4 tsp. Vanilla
In small sauce pan, bring water, sugar, cocoa, and salt to boil. Reduce to simmer and stir for 3 minutes. Take off the burner and add vanilla. It will thicken the longer you leave it sitting, but I used it right away. YUM.
Have you made chocolate sauce before?
