Dark Chocolate Sauce

Dark, glossy and slightly bittersweet, this sauce is both easy to make and a good keeper; serve it right from the refrigerator.

Serves 14

Prep Time 15 min

Total Time 135 min.

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped into 1/4-inch pieces
  • 6 1/2 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar, (use 1-2 tablespoons more for a less-bittersweet sauce)
  • 1/4 teaspoon instant coffee granules
  • 1 cup hot water
  • 1/3 cup dark corn syrup
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Combine chocolate, cocoa, sugar and coffee granules in a food processor. Process until finely ground, about 1 minute.

Step 2

Stir together water and corn syrup in a small saucepan; bring just to a boil over medium-high heat. With the food processor running, add the syrup mixture, then vanilla. Continue processing until the sauce is smooth, scraping down the sides as needed. (The sauce will seem thin, but will thicken during cooling.) Transfer to a container and refrigerate until chilled, at least 2 hours. Stir well before serving; if the sauce seems too thick, stir in a little water.
