Easy Homemade Chocolate Sauce So Delicious You’ll Never Buy It Again

  • Author: Stephanie Wilson

  • Yield: 12 to 14 ounces 1x


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.



1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup cold water
1/2 tablespoon butter
1 teaspoon vanilla


Whisk together in a cold saucepan, the cocoa powder, and sugar until well mixed. Add the cold water and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat and simmer for about 30 seconds. Remove from the heat and stir in the butter and when cooled a bit, the vanilla.

Store in the refrigerator in a glass jar. This will keep refrigerated for several weeks!


The chocolate sauce will be thin while it’s warm but thickens up quite a bit as it cools.
