How to Make Hot Chocolate Sauce for Ice Cream (Old recipe)


  1. Melt the chocolate in a sauce pan on very low heat

    Note: 6 Tablespoons of Cocoa + 2 tablespoons melted butter or coconut oil = 2 1-oz squares of baking chocolate -- just in case you need it
  2. Add the boiling water to the sugar and dissolve
  3. Add the water/sugar S-L-O-W-L-Y to the melted chocolate and bring to boil stirring constantly
  4. Mix the cornstarch with the Tbsp of cold water, then when the chocolate reaches the boiling point add the cornstarch S-L-O-W-L-Y to it

    then: boil for seven minutes (keeping a watchful eye and stirring as needed)
  5. add the vanilla and serve hot on ice cream
  6. I was wondering if I used milk (or evaporated milk) instead of water if it might add a nice flavor to the sauce and make it more like chocolate fudge sauce -- this would require a watchful eye because milk can burn -- just thinking
