5 Minutes To Chocolate Sauce Heaven

A repost from the archives.  It deserves a repost..it is delicious!!  I plan on making a dairy-free version this weekend with earth balance spread instead of butter and serving it over coconut milk ice cream.  I will let you know how it turns out!

I've given this away as a gift and made it a few times for my own family.  It is one of those recipes that I  know I will be in the family for a very long time--it is SOOO good.  It is quick, it uses ingredients we usually have on hand, and it tastes WAY better than store bought chocolate sauce.  When I served it to my husband, he just kept grunting and saying "MMM"& "YUM" as he scraped his bowl clean.  I'm surprised he didn't get his face in it and lick it clean!  Yes, it is that good.

Here is the recipe, it is from recipebzaar.com.  It was recommended by another blog, but I can't remember which one, which I'm feeling pretty bad about because they deserve a big thanks from me!

Lee Lee's Famous Chocolate Sauce For Ice Cream
2 min/1 minute prep time

Serves 4-6

1/2 cup sugar (I use whole cane sugar -rapadura)
2 Tablespoon Cocoa
1/8 tsp Salt
1 1/2-2 Tablespoon Butter
1/4 cup water (more or less, as needed to make a stirable consistency)
1/4 tsp vanilla extract (can't beat 100% pure vanilla extract!)

1. Combine sugar, cocoa, and salt in a small saucepan.
2. Add enough water to make stirable consistency.
3. Add butter to cocoa mixture.
4. Bring to a boil over medium high heat, stirring constantly.
5. Allow to boil for 1 minute, stirring.
6. Remove from heat.
7. Add vanilla.
8. Serve warm over ice cream.


  1. OK I finally have an excuse to make some chocolate sauce and this is going to be my recipe. If I;m serving it to 20 people how many recipes do I need to make? Double? Triple? MORE?! :) Lisa~

    1. Adding up the ingredient list, I'm guessing the recipe yields about a cup of sauce.

  2. Yep, @harper is right...about a cup. I'd say triple or quadruple it. It made enough for my family of 5 to have generous amounts on our ice-cream :)

  3. I just made this sauce and it is UNBELIEVABLE! I can't believe how yummy it is! Thanks so much for sharing. I'm so glad I found you via Pinterest. :)
