Chocolate Sauce

on August 1, 2017

Because it’s August, and it’s summer, and it’s hot outside, we need this Chocolate Sauce to use on all of the ice cream and frozen treats we’re going to be making for the rest of this month. My favorite way to use this sauce is to pour it over Homemade Ice Cream, but you could also use it on Angel Food Cake or Clara’s “Goofy” Pound Cake. It’s great on any dessert, and you’re going to want to keep this in your refrigerator for pouring on anything. A helpful hint – do NOT keep spoons anywhere near this sauce. Just a suggestion. Not like I have any real reason to suggest this. Sort of. This recipe came from one of Grandma’s old church cookbooks, and it looks like my mom first made it in August of 1974!

Wow – this is good! Real good!

Here is the recipe as I made it:

Chocolate Sauce

Combine:

1 cup sugar

2 Tablespoons cornstarch

2 Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa

Add:

1 cup water

Boil over low heat until mixture thickens, stirring constantly.

Add:

2 Tablespoons butter

1 teaspoon vanilla

Cool.

The recipe says that more water can be added for a thinner sauce.

Again – the ingredients for this sauce are so simple. Everyone will have these on hand, which makes it very handy and easy to make.

Mix the dry ingredients together first.

Next comes the water and the boiling part. Just add the butter and vanilla and you’re done!

You can let this cool if you want to, but it’s sure delightful to have this when it’s warm.

Warm sauce makes the ice cream all melty and stuff. I think you’re going to want to make this regularly. Maybe even every weekend. Stay cool this August and try it on ice cream, on dessert, or even just on a spoon. This Chocolate Sauce is ridiculously inexpensive, is ridiculously simple to make, and is ridiculously delicious.
