  • Bring water and sugar to a boil in a saucepan, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Stir in cocoa mixture slowly. Reduce heat to medium. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until sauce thickens slightly, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.

  • Pour sauce into a storage container and leave to cool, uncovered, until thickened. Place container on an ice pack for faster cooling. Cover and store in the refrigerator.

Cook's Note:

The extract should contain only real vanilla and alcohol. Avoid extracts with corn syrup, fillers, or additives. Try mint or orange extracts for a flavor boost!

This resulted in a smooth, creamy sauce that would be good on ice cream or even in mixed in milk. A good quality cocoa is a must or the flavor just isn't right. Quick and easy to make. Read More

A fantastic chocolate sauce! I honestly don't taste the difference between this and the proper dairy stuff. A great mix between milk and dark! Thanks Cora! Read More

2.3.21 Hard to believe that something this simple to make could taste so rich and chocolaty. A drizzle over ice cream tasted decadent (but it’s not). Thumbs up in this house! Read More
