"death by Chocolate" Copycat Dark Chocolate Sauce

We were astonished to discover that we could make a dark chocolate sauce in minutes for pennies that matched what we'd received in a $4, 6-ounce gift jar.


  1. Mix cocoa and sugar thoroughly.
  2. Stir in water in small amounts, until desired consistency is reached.
  3. Keep in tightly sealed container in refrigerator (for instance, the jar from a prior "Death by Chocolate" gift!).
  4. Best served on second day, to make sure sugar completely dissolves.

I made this using Splenda in place of sugar and fat free evaporated milk in place of the water. This made a wonderful virtually sugar and fat free chocolate sauce. I added a wee splash of cherry extract just for the fun of it. Made for Comfort Cafe, Summer 09.

Made for "2008 All New Zaar Cookbooks Tag" I really like dark chocolate, but this was a bit too bland for me. I added 1 tsp of vanilla and 1 tsp of butter and put it in the MW for about 30 seconds to melt the butter. It's a quick and easy sauce and a great substitute when you don't have the stuff in the brown bottle.
