Picture Perfect – 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.

    • 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?

  5. Looks good Tandy! By the way I did a capsicum recipe this wee – can I submit it for your challenge or is it over? And do I just e mail you?

  6. 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.
