Recipe For Chocolate Sauce

At the South African Food Bloggers Conference we were told not to make the headings of our blogs something obscure. I would love to call this recipe, the world’s best chocolate sauce – but, that is really only my own opinion. However, give it a try and I am sure you will agree. For Project Food Blog, Challenge 4 was to do a post using photographs. This would have been very challenging for me, as I only use one photograph per blog post. Here I am going to show you step by step with pictures and words, how to go about making this chocolate sauce. The recipe can be found in Lavender & Lime.

Method
  1. in the top of a double boiler melt the chocolate over barely simmering water
  2. stir in the syrup
  3. whisk in the cream
  4. add the butter and whisk until the sauce is shiny
  5. remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla purée

My Notes
you can use maple syrup instead of corn syrup. Serve hot over ice cream. Keep in the fridge and use as needed

    1. hi. I am not sure where you live, but I have never seen corn syrup in South Africa. I have managed to find it in the USA, Australia and Dubai. Where are you?

  9. I can stand as witness to this sauce. It also goes very well in my little fondue pot and the kids love it for dipping marshmallows and strawberries.
