Bittersweet Chocolate Fudge Sauce
This is a very rich chocolate sauce that is good served hot or cold. I like this better than the store bought chocolate sauce because it is not as sweet and has a richer, darker chocolate flavor that makes even premium ice cream taste richer. It is especially good over ice cream with fruit like bananas, blueberries, strawberries or whatever is in season. It is good on cake and brownies too. Or just mix a spoon or two in a cold glass of milk including non-dairy milks like Coconut milk or Almond milk.
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup water
2 Tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1-2 ounces good quality 60-70% bittersweet chocolate
In a small sauce pan with no heat whisk the sugar and cocoa together until well combined. Add water and bring to a boil, stirring constantly to make sure everything dissolves. Boil gently for three minutes. Break the bittersweet chocolate into small same-sized pieces first so it melts quicker then add it with the butter to the pan. Boil while stirring another three minutes then remove from heat and add vanilla. Cool slightly then serve over ice cream or cake, whatever. Store leftovers covered in refrigerator then reheat or serve cold.
