Chocolate Sauce Recipes

Some of my chocolate sauce recipes as requested :) I like to have choices when I bake/make/create!

Economical Choc Sauce

1 tbsp cocoa powder
1 tbsp cornflour
2 tbsp sugar
1 cup milk
1 tsp butter
1/4 tsp vanilla essence

Combine dry ingredients in a saucepan. Slowly add milk while stirring. Make sure there are no lumps (use a whisk if necessary). On a medium heat bring mixture to a boil, stir constantly. Keep stirring and simmer until mixture thickens (a couple of minutes). Keep stirring while you add butter and essence. Serve as you like!

Rich Chocolate Sauce
170g of plain chocolate
170ml of water
115g of caster sugar
 55g of butter
1 tsp of vanilla extract
Break the chocolate into small pieces and cut the butter into small pieces. Place all of the ingredients together in a saucepan and heat over a low heat, stirring continuously. Once all the ingredients have melted and blended together, the sauce is ready to serve.

The Best Chocolate Sauce

1 cup (250 ml) water
1/2 cup (100 g) sugar
1/2 cup (160 g) light corn syrup, agave nectar, or glucose (or make a sugar syrup by mixing 1/4 cup of sugar into 1/2 cup of water and mixing gently over a low heat)
3/4 cup (75 g) unsweetened cocoa powder (preferably Dutch-processed)
55g bittersweet or semisweet chocolate, finely chopped
In a medium saucepan, whisk together the water, sugar, corn syrup (or agave or glucose), and cocoa powder.Bring to a boil over medium heat. Once it’s just begun to simmer and boil, remove from heat and stir in the chopped chocolate until melted.
Serving: You should let the Chocolate Sauce stand for a few hours before serving, which will give it time to thicken a bit.
Storage: Store the chocolate sauce in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to 10 days. Rewarm before serving.
