5 Minutes To Chocolate Sauce Heaven

A repost from the archives.  It deserves a is delicious!!  I plan on making a dairy-free version this weekend with earth balance spread instead of butter and serving it over coconut milk ice cream.  I will let you know how it turns out!
I’ve given this away as a gift and made it a few times for my own family.  It is one of those recipes that I  know I will be in the family for a very long time–it is SOOO good.  It is quick, it uses ingredients we usually have on hand, and it tastes WAY better than store bought chocolate sauce.  When I served it to my husband, he just kept grunting and saying “MMM”& “YUM” as he scraped his bowl clean.  I’m surprised he didn’t get his face in it and lick it clean!  Yes, it is that good.

Here is the recipe, it is from  It was recommended by another blog, but I can’t remember which one, which I’m feeling pretty bad about because they deserve a big thanks from me!

    Yep, @harper is right…about a cup. I’d say triple or quadruple it. It made enough for my family of 5 to have generous amounts on our ice-cream 🙂

    OK I finally have an excuse to make some chocolate sauce and this is going to be my recipe. If I;m serving it to 20 people how many recipes do I need to make? Double? Triple? MORE?! 🙂 Lisa~

      Adding up the ingredient list, I’m guessing the recipe yields about a cup of sauce.
