This cookbook was put together by my grandmother's church as a fundraiser and contains her recipe for Chocolate Sauce. It's a very simple recipe and you might even have all the ingredients in your pantry right now.
You will need:
- 1 Tbsp butter
- 1 oz unsweetened baking chocolate, roughly chopped (solid, not the pre-melted kind)
- 1/3 cup boiling water
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 2 Tbsp corn syrup (Grandma used Beehive brand which is dark and thick, I use Karo dark)
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 1/8 tsp salt
Of course, I had to make some this week. We had it over vanilla ice cream (which I recommend, it is pretty sweet) watching game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final.
This sauce is fairly thin when hot, then thicker and almost chewy as it cools over and under your ice cream. It's so nice to have something on your ice cream with ingredients you can pronounce that doesn't taste manufactured!
