I’ve said it before and I’ll say it AGAIN, I seriously love being able to make things I could normally buy at the store. It gives me such a feeling of like “ha! I made that and didn’t have to buy it!” I have a few recipes like that on my website and here is another one.

For this recipe both cocoa powder and actual chocolate are used. Now, the better the ingredients that you’re using is going to determine the quality of your end product. Go with what you can afford/what is accessible to you! My go to’s for cocoa powder and chocolate (if we’re talking high quality but not suuuper expensive) is Guittard®. IF you can’t find their products in your local grocery store you can always get it on Amazon!

What Ingredients & Equipment Do I Need For This Recipe?


  • Granulated Sugar– May replace with a sugar alternative.
  • Water– Tap water works pretty good!
  • Corn Syrup– You can use your light or dark corn syrup of choice.
  • Kosher Salt
  • Cocoa Powder
  • Chocolate of Choice– I like to go with a darker chocolate for this sauce as it has the addition of sugar. Sweet but not too sweet is what I’m after.


  • Set of Measuring Cups & Spoons (Liquid too) OR Digital Kitchen Scale if Using Metric
  • Small Pot– For brining the sugar, water, and corn syrup to a boil.
  • Medium Mixing Bowl– To combine the chocolate and cocoa powder and to mix together with the hot sugar syrup.
  • Whisk– If you have an Immersion Blender, this will help to ensure that all of the chocolate and cocoa powder is mixed in.
  • Fine Mesh Strainer– This is used to double make sure that there are no clumps for the perfect smooth texture.
  • Container for Storing– I use glass jars for my sauces. Just as long as it has a lid, you’re good to go.

My Kinda Professional Tips For Chocolate Sauce

  • Be sure to chop your chocolate if using a bar. This will help when you’re mixing in the hot syrup and the smaller pieces will melt faster ensuring a smooth chocolate sauce.
  • Bring the sugar syrup to a boil and only a boil. The longer you cook the sugar the thicker it will become, resulting in a thicker sauce. Now, if that’t more the texture you’re into, go for it! It’s all delicious.
  • If it’s a little too thick out of the fridge, pop in the microwave for 10 seconds. Or you can keep the lid on and run some hot water over top for 1 minutes, that should help it be the perfect drizzling consistency.
  • This sauce will keep in the fridge in a close-able container for up to two months.
