Super Easy Chocolate Sauce
I wanted to use chocolate sauce for my Giant Cookie recipe, but I didn’t have some. I did have some left over cocoa powder and some brown sugar, so I tried making my own. I used the same measurements of the three ingredients. I figured that since you needed equal amounts of sugar and water to make a thick sweet syrup, my sauce would probably have a great chance of thickening if I follow that ratio. I just added he same amount of cocoa powder and hoped for the best. Luckily, my first try did not end up being an epic fail.
I didn’t get to record the whole process though, so below is a clip of me whisking the sauce. I pulled the sauce off the heat just when it was about to receive the consistency that I wanted because I thought that it would thicken some more once it’s refrigerated.
Here are the ingredients:
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup water
- Combine all the ingredients in a sauce pan. Whisk until there are no more lumps and the sugar is dissolved.
- Put the pot on medium heat, whisking until the mixture thickens.
- Remove from heat once you achieve your desired thickness. Transfer into a container, cool and put in the fridge until it’s time to use it.
Use this sauce on top of ice cream, pancakes, waffles, or on top of a Giant Cookie.
