But I've been searching FOREVER for a stellar chocolate sauce that would be perfect for ice cream. Not too thick, not too gloppy, not too runny. A very Hershey's sauce. Is that too much to ask?
Apparently it was, because I've been looking for a very long time.
But glorioski. I believe I've finally found it. I've seen similar recipes on a few blogs, but this one came from a small cookbook I bought a few years ago from the Hearts at Home
organization (called Recipes from the Heart).
1 c. cocoa powder
1 1/2 c. sugar
1 c. hot water
2 t. vanilla (I up it to 1 T.)
Boil cocoa, sugar, water, and salt, stirring constantly. (You may want to do this over medium-high heat rather than high to avoid the chance of scorching.) Remove from heat and add vanilla. Pour over ice cream and slurp up the deliciousness. Pour remaining sauce in a jar and refrigerate.
Does anyone else have killer chocolate sauce recipes that the rest of us simply must try?
