Did You Know?…

This chocolate sauce recipe uses unsweetened cocoa, which creates a lovely sauce in minutes with just a few ingredients.

That makes this sauce great as a weekday treat or perfect for entertaining company.

One of the nice things about this easy sauce recipe is that it uses ingredients that we most often have in our kitchen pantry, so you can whip it up any time you or your family have a craving.

Good quality cocoa is best and will result in the nicest taste, but in reality any cocoa will do. I usually just use the cocoa powder from the grocery store.

Indulge and enjoy.
