Easy Chocolate Peanut Butter Sauce

This is wicked on ice cream, and keeps up to a 7 days tightly covered in the fridge. If you prefer a sweeter sauce, increase the sugar slightly.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, bring 1 cup water to a boil.
  2. Whisk in cocoa powder and sugar; cook whisking constantly until the mixture forms bubbles around the edges of the pan.
  3. Simmer until sauce thickens slighty, whisking constantly (this should take about 3-4 minutes).
  4. Reduce heat to low and whisk in peanut butter; simmer until sauce thickens and is smooth (another 3 minutes longer).
  5. Remove from heat and add in vanilla; cool slightly.
  6. If not using immediately, cool completely and transfer to a glass bowl, cover and refrigerate.
  7. Just rewarm slightly before using.

It's okay, but didn't live up to the reviews. needs more sweetness and is too thick.

This is fabulous! Thick & rich & flavourful!

This sounds scrummy and has the potential to become one of life's 'comfort' foods. How long will it keep in the fridge?
