“This is a great sauce for a fresh fruit dip, but also great over ice cream. This sauce thickens more as it cools. If it's too thick you can thin it with some milk or cream to the consistency you like.”

  1. In a medium saucepan, combine brown sugar, cocoa and flour. Stir in water, a little at a time, to make a smooth paste. Stir in milk and butter. Bring to a boil over medium heat and let boil 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Let cool completely at room temperature, stirring often to prevent a skin from forming. Store in refrigerator after cooling.

I just made this recipe and i should have went with my gut instinct.I should have used white sugar instead of brown sugar. The molasses after taste is terrible.I believe the problem with the thick consistancy is from boiling it too long.It really only needs to be boiled about 3 minutes.



I couldn't imagine how boiling chocolate for 5 minutes wasn't going to taste burnt, but I stirred it constantly and it doesn't. I use it for ice cream topping and the flavor is very very good, much better than the last $10.00 jar of fancy hot fudge sauce I purchased. It tastes even better after it has had time to sit in the fridge. Texture is like very thick pudding, but easy to adjust with a little milk and heating. Chocoholics - the best way to appreciate it is straight out of the container.



One word says it all AWESOME. This is the best dip for fruit that you can imagine. Easy and simple to prepare.
