I found the chocolate flavour not strong enough. The best ratio of cocoa to sugar is for every tablespoon of cocoa add 1.5 tablespoons of caster sugar. By adding less sugar, it made a very tasty chocolate sauce. I heated it in the microwave, and that worked fine.
didn't work for me. I timed the boiling one minute, but it was hard when I put it on my ice cream...and I really tasted no significant flavor either.
I liked it, my family didn't. They said it was too stringy and grainy to beat my other recipe. I added abt. one tsp. vanilla, used dark chocolate coco, and also added abt. one tsp. mint extract. the flavor was really dark and minty. :) (The most likely reason for it being stringy was me cooking it too long, making the sugar start crystalizing )
Great tasting sauce! Thanks for posting.
So simple and SO good!
Soooo good! Even better after I let it cool a bit--it thickened up. Must make triple batch next time. Single batch was enough for 3 bowls of ice cream.
I've tried some different chocolate syrup recipes, but this one is a keeper. The recipes without butter are not as good. I quadrupled the recipe, and used regular cocoa powder, not Dutch processed. I did boil it a little longer and add a handful of chocolate chips at the end to make sure it was thick. It ended up just a little thicker than it needed to be, and just the slightest bit grainy, prob from the choc chips. Next time I'll make as directed.
I could not believe how easy and fast this luscious sauce is!! I can't wait to make more,
On top of Banana Pancakes - Grain Free, Milk-Free with extra sliced organic bananas on top. Wowie. Like my mom used to make for the ice cream dessert we ate all to often. I made ours a bit healthier using organic cane sugar, organic fair-trade cocoa powder, sea salt, light tasting extra virgin olive oil to be dairy free, & alcohol free vanilla from the health food store. I will make this again for DH to try those pancakes! Made for Healthy Choices Tag Game 2013.
Thank you so much for such a quick and easy recipe. I have made it twice in a week. The second time was a double batch.
