Chocolate Sauce Recipe

Chocolate Sauce Recipe, is for a delicious creamy fudge sauce made easy, which is thin enough for ice cream and thick enough for other desserts.

It contains milk, cocoa, sugar, butter and flavoring.

Just boil on top of the stove for a few minutes and you are done.

This recipe is so delicious and easy that many years ago, my then 10 year old daughter, made it regularly. 

She poured it up into half pint canning jars and sold them to family members, friends and acquaintances.

This was one of her 4-H Club projects she excelled in.

This Chocolate Sauce Recipe is frugal, saving you money over store bought sauce.

Make as much or as little as you need at a time by halving, doubling or tripling the recipe.

Chocolate Sauce
Recipe Made Easy

  • 1 1/2 cups cold whole milk

  • 1 1/3 cups sugar

  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter

  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Mix together sugar, cocoa powder and salt in a saucepan. 

Slowly stir milk in until all cocoa lumps are gone.

Cover with a lid.

Turn on low heat and cook the mixture until it comes to a boil, stirring occasionally.

After it reaches a hard boil, remove the lid and start timing.

Boil for 10 minutes.

For a thicker sauce, cook an additional 2-3 minutes.

Turn off heat.

Leave the pot on the burner and drop in the butter.

Let it melt.

Will take a minute or two.

Stir in the vanilla extract. Beat with a whisk 2 or 3 minutes.

Seems to make the sauce creamier.

Sauce can be served hot, at room temperature or chilled in the refrigerator.

Delicious served over Whipped Cream, ice cream, puddings, like my Butterscotch Pudding and cakes.

Delicious drizzled over cakes or custard pies, hot or cold.

It also makes a delicious topping for eclairs, donuts or other desserts.

This can also be used to make hot chocolate or chocolate milk.

Just stir in a few tablespoons of this yummy Chocolate Sauce, according to your taste, to any dessert dish that is compatible.

Store in an airtight jar in the refrigerator.

To use as a Hot Fudge Sauce, remove the amount needed in your recipe and heat it in a microwave safe container for a minute or two.

Time it according to the amount of sauce you are heating and your microwave's capability.

This is a very good old fashioned Recipe.
