Easy Chocolate Sauce

  • 1 1/2 cups  granulated sugar
  • 1  cup cocoa powder
  • 1  pinch salt
  • 1  cup whole milk
  • 2  teaspoons vanilla


  1. In heavy-bottomed 2  quart pot, combine sugar, cocoa powder, and salt. Whisk to combine.  Gradually stir in the water. Stir until well combined.
  2. Set over medium heat;  stirring constantly until mixture comes to a boil.l  Boil three minutes,  stirring frequently with whisk and reducing heat if syrup threatens to  boil over. Remove from heat; pour into heatproof 4 cup measure or  pitcher. Cool briefly.
  3. Cool on counter  (uncovered) until room temperature, strain through fine strainer into  container of 2-1/2 cup capacity. Stir in vanilla.
  4. Store, covered, in refrigerator.

(As a side note, I did not strain the chocolate sauce through a fine strainer. Mine was thick, but not really lumpy at all. It was perfect without straining!) Enjoy! 🙂 ❤ Christina Kirtley
