Homemade Chocolate Sauce Recipe / How to make Chocolate Sauce

I love chocolate! I have said that many times here! So I always have chocolate sauce in my kitchen to use it on desserts. Chocolate sauce definitely makes the dessert taste more good. It makes a sinful dessert even more sinful! I used to buy Hershey's all the time but when I made this sauce for the first time, I never went back to store bought chocolate sauce again. 

You can adjust the consistency of the sauce by the amount of water added. You can reduce the water a bit for a thicker sauce or keep stirring for some time to get a thicker consistency like the store bought syrups.
I like mine just as it is!

Preparation time 0 | Cooking time 10 mins

  • Hershey's Cocoa - 1/2 cup (or any other unsweetened cocoa powder)
  • Sugar - 1 cup
  • Water - 1 cup
  • Vanilla extract - 1 tsp
  • Salt - a tiny pinch

1. Combine cocoa, sugar, and salt in a saucepan.
2. Add water, and mix until smooth.
3. Bring this mixture to a boil.
4. Allow it to boil for one minute, be careful this does not over boil.
5. Remove from heat.

6. When this cools add the vanilla.

1. If you prefer a thicker sauce, reduce the water to 3/4th cup. Or keep the flame at low and you can stir the mixture for longer until the sauce thickens. 

Until next time,
