This is a sinfully delicious recipe for chocolate sauce. I had to bribe, barter, and steal to get this "top secret" recipe from a chef I worked with while attending college. He refused to use canned chocolate sauce and always made this recipe when he worked.
- Mix the sugar and cocoa in a small saucepan until well blended.
- Over medium heat, slowly add the water and mix well.
