I just love how deep and rich the chocolate flavor is in this recipe.  I used a blend of natural and dutched cocoa powder, and it really gave an incredibly flavorful result.  The whole thing took about 5 minutes total to whip up, and now we have a delicious sauce in the cupboard that will be stirred into everything from chocolate milk to freshly brewed mochas, and drizzled as a topping over ice cream or pound cake (or both!).

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 cup water
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2/3 cup cocoa (I used a dark cocoa)
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons   vanilla extract

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Put the water and sugar in a small pot and place over medium-high heat.  Bring to a simmer, whisking, until the sugar has completely dissolved.  Whisk in the cocoa and salt, and continue to cook until the mixture is slightly thickened (about 3 minutes).  Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla.
