READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by carlenebyron

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.

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.
