Thick Chocolate Sauce

Inspiration:  Hot Fudge Sundaes

Served here with Steamed Chocolate Cake and Brown Butter Vanilla Sauce

Thick Chocolate Sauce:  for about 1 1/2 cups (350ml) of sauce

  • 2 tbsp (15g) of good quality cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup (100g)  sugar 
  • 3/4 cup (180ml) of 15% cooking cream - this makes it lighter but you can also use heavy cream or condensed milk
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) of maple syrup or light corn syrup
  • 2 tbsp (30ml) of salted butter
  • 1t of pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup (80g) of chopped dark chocolate or dark chocolate chips (I used 66% cocoa)
  • if you didn't use salted butter, add a pinch of salt

How to make it:

Place all the ingredients in a medium saucepan over medium heat, whisking continuously until it reaches a gentle boil;

Reduce heat to medium low and simmer for 5  minutes (stir every once in while);  the longer it cooks the thicker it will become;

Sauce should be reheated gently before serving (it is quite thick when cold - like soft fudge!) Enjoy!
