Chocolate sauce

IMG_2217Today I decided to share an easy recipe that is always good to have tucked away, for those times when you don’t feel like baking. This can be used on icecream or poured over poached pears.

  • 4 oz. unsweetened chocolate or 4 tablespoons of cocoa,
  • 11/2 cups sugar
  • 11/2 cups water
  • 11/2 tablespoons cornflour (or one bare tbsp for a thinner sauce)
  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence

Boil to required consistency.It needs to be easy to pour over icecream.
