What’s ice cream with chocolate sauce? And now I ask, “What’s ice cream without homemade chocolate sauce?” I’m a convert and I’m never going back. Rich chocolate, creamy goodness and so simple, I’ll never buy it again.
You have to understand. We’re ice cream people. Well, my guys are ice cream people. Specifically, my husband. We’ve been married more than 25 years. And I’m not sure I can recall an evening at home where he didn’t have a dish of ice cream.
He’s one of those lucky people who never, ever has to watch what he eats. Although he does, maybe thanks to me. Smile. Incredibly healthy and works out every day. Ice cream, though, is his indulgence of choice.
For me? I like it too — but not every day. When I do indulge, I like a drizzle of chocolate sauce. And to date — we’ve always been the in-the-refrigerator-door, store-bought chocolate sauce kind of people. You know — like Hershey’s. And it’s good! It certainly satisfies a chocolate craving.
But it was one of those nights when that ever-present, in-the-refrigerator-door, store-bought chocolate sauce wouldn’t yield even a drop. And the chocolate craving was strong.
The adage — “necessity is the mother of invention” came to mind. And it finally dawned on me that “Hey… I could just make it!”
There are dozens of chocolate sauce recipes on the web. They’re all similar and I know delicious.
This is a bit different with a single ingredient that I think makes it a bit more delicious.
So the next time you’re searching for that elusive chocolate sauce — try this. You just might become a convert too!
