Homemade Chocolate Sauce

I wanted to treat the kids to homemade ice cream sundaes last night. I have been wanting to try making my own chocolate sauce for awhile, so this seemed like a good time to try.

I first searched the internet for a recipe, of course. I didn’t find one that was exactly like I wanted, so I made a few changes. I didn’t want to use corn syrup or evaporated milk, or water. Here’s what I came up with.

Homemade Chocolate Sauce

2/3 cups cocoa
1 2/3 cups sugar
a pinch of salt
1 1/4 cup milk
1 tablespoon butter

combine the above in a saucepan and bring to a boil while stirring. Once it boils, continue to cook for 2-3 minutes stirring constantly.

Remove from heat and stir in:

1 teaspoon vanilla

Let cool, and pour into a jar.


Or in our case, serve warm over ice cream! This recipe makes a nice, thick sauce for ice cream or other desserts. If you want a thinner sauce for chocolate milk, you can use water instead of milk in this recipe.

I didn’t get a picture of it on ice cream, it was eaten too fast!

It made plenty of sauce, too. The picture above is a pint canning jar. That’s what was left after we all had some on ice cream.

It was sooooo yummy!

  9. This is exactly the type of recipe I was hoping to find. : )

  10. As a Russian I grew up with traditional Matryoshkas (they were wooden dolls that stacked inside one another) so I can totally appreciate the awesomeness associated with them. I personally own measuring cups that are similar to your Babushkups and I adore them!
