Commercial chocolate sauce is too sweet and the chocolate is too weak.  Here is a chocolate sauce with plenty of chocolate flavor for your ice cream sundaes and hot chocolate milk.


1 C Water    1C Milk     1/4 tsp. Salt   

2 C Sifted Cocoa Powder     1C Sugar    1 tsp. Vanilla Extract   1T Corn Syrup (Optional)

Place the water, milk, and salt into a 6 quart sauce pan and begin warming at medium heat over your smallest burner.   Constantly stir as you sift in the cocoa powder.

Alternately, if you want runnier syrup, add the sugar at the beginning with the other ingredients (for some reason, the cocoa powder will not thicken if the sugar is present before boiling).

Let the sauce cool 10 minutes, stirring every now and then.  Add the vanilla.  After about a half hour, go ahead and pour the sauce into a large jar or a couple of small jars. 


- I like to use a couple of small jars and store them upside down in the refrigerator.  This way, water does not condense around the top of the jar, allowing fungus to grow. 

- This recipe is quite thick.   If you prefer a thinner sauce, just add a little more milk or water to the recipe (and/or add the sugar before tha cocoa).

- The quality of the cocoa has a big influence on the taste and texture of the sauce.  I buy cocoa powder in bulk at a natural foods store for only $5 per pound.  Costco usually has a quality cocoa for a good price.  The cost for making the sauce goes way up if you buy boxed cocoa at a regular retail grocery store. 

- I like a large teaspoon of this chocolate sauce in hot milk for hot chocolate in the evening.
