David claims that this chocolate sauce is the best chocolate sauce ever. I must agree it is pretty awesome. A great homemade chocolate sauce recipe is a must in every woman’s arsenal of romanitc Valentine’s Day recipes. The main dish is just the bait. A delectable chocolate sauce, however, is the hook, line and sinker. It can communicate I Love You! with just one bite.

This chocolate sauce is absolutely amazing when paired with strawberry cream cheese and crapes. Drizzle chocolate sauce over ice cream, cheesecake, or chocolate torte.

About 2 1/2 cups

1 cup (250 ml) water
1/2 cup (100 g) sugar
1/2 cup (160 g) light corn syrup, agave nectar, or glucose
3/4 cup (75 g) unsweetened cocoa powder (preferably Dutch-processed)
2 ounces (55 g) bittersweet or semisweet chocolate, finely chopped

1. In a medium saucepan, whisk together the water, sugar, corn syrup (or agave or glucose), and cocoa powder.

2. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Once it’s just begun to simmer and boil, remove from heat and stir in the chopped chocolate until melted.

Serving: You should let the Chocolate Sauce stand for a few hours before serving, which will give it time to thicken a bit.

Storage: Store the chocolate sauce in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to 10 days. Rewarm before serving.
