Chocolate Sauce Recipe

Cook Time 10 minutes


  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 1/2 cups pue cane sugar
  • 1 cup unsweetened cocoa use Fair-Trade, please
  • dash of salt
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla


  • In a heavy saucepan on medium whisk water and sugar together until sugar is dissolved (about 4 minutes), whisking often.
  • Add cocoa and salt and continue on low heat until the sauce just starts bubbling, whisking constantly.
  • Remove from heat and add the vanilla.
  • Pour into glass jars and cool in the fridge OR serve immediately.
  • The sauce thickens as it cools (or, see notes below if you are using this immediately)


If you would like to thicken the consistency (this is pretty thin!) into a syrup consistency, add a small bit of water to 1.5 Tablespoons of cornstarch and add it in with the cocoa and salt. It should thicken up nicely.
