- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/2 cup light corn syrup
- 1/4 cup half-and-half or evaporated milk
- 2 tablespoons butter or margarine
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
In a small saucepan, stir together the sugar, cocoa powder, corn syrup and half-and-half. Set over medium heat and cook until mixture comes to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 3 minutes. Remove sauce from heat and add butter and vanilla, stirring until the butter melts. Cool to warm or room temperature before using or store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week. The chocolate sauce can be reheated in the microwave.
