Normally we bought Chocolate sauce from the market but I am sharing with you a very simple, quick to make homemade chocolate sauce recipe.
The sauce gets ready in just 10 minutes. And the taste... Heavenly delicious.
This recipe of mine is almost 17-18 years old and I have never ever felt the need to change it or to look for something else.
It's just perfect. It is glossy and the texture is awesome.
Made with cocoa powder as the main ingredient, it tastes exactly the same as store bought one.
One added advantage of making the chocolate sauce at home is that you can control the amount of sugar. If need be, you can replace sugar with maple syrup or brown sugar. It is healthy also as along with sugar, honey is also added to it.
