Homemade chocolate sauce

A little while ago we invented a new homemade chocolate sauce from some half-remembered chocolate sauce recipes and the ingredients we had to hand. We’ve been meaning to post about it, but we’ve just been too busy eating it. We find it goes very well as topping on ice cream.


It’s very simple to make.


2 tablespoons cocoa powder
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons water


Put all the ingredients in a saucepan and simmer on low heat, stirring occasionally. Adjust quantities of ingredients to taste. Serve as soon as the sauce reaches the desired level of viscosity (about 5 min should be long enough for a nice gooey ice cream topping).

The sauce also works very well as chocolate flavouring in homemade milkshakes, but that’s the topic of another post. The sauce goes well with pretty much everything that cows give us – as Ogden Nash would say:

The cow is of the bovine ilk,
One end is moo, the other, milk.

  1. Nice presentation, you did the artistic swirl of sauce thingy! Except in this case I’d be willing to bet you licked the sauce off the plate later 🙂

  2. What a simple but delicious recipe! I will definately try this, I rarely buy chocolate sauce but have the staples to make it at home myself!
