Bittersweet Chocolate Sauce

Recipe Ingredients

3/4 cup skim milk
3/4 cup baking cocoa
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup measurable sweetener (such as Stevia)

Recipe Directions

French Vanilla Ice Cream

Gradually stir milk into cocoa in a small saucepan; add margarine and cook over medium heat just to simmering, stirring frequently.

Stir in vanilla; cool. Stir in sweetener; refrigerate.

Serve chocolate sauce over frozen yogurt or sliced fruit.

Recipe Notes

  1. If chocolate sauce is not completely smooth, process in blender or food processor 30 to 60 seconds.
  2. It is important to use a good, quality cocoa in this recipe for the best flavor possible. Gourmet Baking Cocoa is 100 percent cocoa. No extra additives, just cocoa processed with Alkali, which is why we recommend it.

Recipe Suggestion

Try this sauce over a batch of home made French Vanilla Ice Cream!
