Homemade Chocolate Sauce | Chocolate syrup

Chocolate sauce/Syrup , the creamy chocolaty sauce that goes well with ice cream, fruits or with any milkshake/smoothies. I'm in 0.0001% of women who doesn't go crazy about chocolate, then you might think why the chocolate sauce recipe?hmm, will tell you the reason.Whenever i had seen the photos of ice creams/smoothies drizzled with chocolate syrup,i was so tempted and wanted to make that way, so i brought chocolate syrup from the store and i hardly used it twice or thrice before it expired and the whole(almost) bottle ended up in trash.Few weeks before, when one of our friends visited us, i thought of serving ice cream with chocolate sauce for desserts,again i didn't want to buy and waste the whole bottle, so tried the chocolate sauce recipe from here and it turned out delicious.Just like me, those who don't want to buy the whole bottle of chocolate syrup for occasional use or those who prefer home made recipe than the store brought, this recipe might help.

It stays well for upto 2 weeks in refrigerator.Tasty homemade chocolate sauce/syrup is ready.
  • This sauce thickens when it's cooled, so switch off the heat when it coats the back of the spoon.
  • I didn't add vanilla essence in the sauce as i want chocolate flavor as dominant.
  • If the cocoa powder has more lumps,shift it before use.
