Mmmm…. homemade chocolate sauce.
This is a wonderful dessert sauce recipe that you will find so many uses for.
It is a perfect sauce for drizzling over chocolate or vanilla ice cream, brownies, puddings or cakes.
Just about anything that goes with chocolate could benefit from a dousing of this wonderful sweet sauce. Chocolate sauce in your yogurt – why not?
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.
Dessert sauces are so handy for entertaining. They make any simple dessert look and taste much more elegant.
Indulge and enjoy.
