Very Versatile Dark Chocolate Sauce

I can describe this dark chocolate sauce in 3 ways: it’s made from real chocolate; it’s easy to make; and it’s very versatile. Store bought chocolate sauce is just an imitation and has loads of sugar. This sauce has a true, rich chocolate flavor made from at least 60% cocoa. This dark chocolate sauce is fairly easy to make too, using only 7 ingredients and literally involves boiling and mixing only – anybody can do it! You don’t need special skills to make this, but you definitely need a good quality dark chocolate.

 

I think anyone who loves desserts should have a good dark chocolate sauce recipe in his arsenal as it can be used in so many ways: dip your churros, strawberries, and cookies; coat your cupcakes, marshmallows, and ice cream (say goodbye to store-bought magic shell!); pour over puddings, crepes, and waffles, drizzle over your drinks, whipped cream, or even use when plating desserts. Very versatile in the world of desserts!

If left to cool, the chocolate will set. Rewarm the dark chocolate sauce in the microwave in increments of 30 seconds and in low setting. Alternatively, you can also put the sauce in a heatproof bowl set over a saucepan of simmering water (The water should not touch the bottom of the bowl.). Heat the sauce for about 3-5 minutes while stirring regularly.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 150 grams dark chocolate (at least 60% cocoa)
  • 150 ml full fat milk
  • 63 ml heavy cream
  • 20 grams granulated white sugar
  • 20 grams light corn syrup
  • 8 grams cocoa powder
  • 15 grams unsalted butter
