No-Fat Chocolate Sauce

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Dancer

This sauce is so good it disappears quickly. It is delectable as a dessert topping over ice cream, sponge cake, or fresh pears, and is superb as the base for chocolate drinks.

I made this for a glaze on top of my profiteroles (cream puffs) - which I'll post shortly. I cut the recipe in half and used coffee. It was delish. I DID add another tsp of cornstarch to make it less runny so it would stay on the puffs. It's more like a really mean hot chocolate in the origional recipe. It you really want a sauce, double the cornstarch. But I guess thickness of sauces is a matter of opinion and taste ;)
