Singh bought a bottle of Hershey’s last year. We used it so greedily. And then, just when half the bottle was still full, I used it all up in something that failed so utterly miserably. Anyways. The bottle is now empty and am going to make chocolate sauce – it will be cheaper than the store-bought syrups, richer and tastier, and will NOT contain any cornsyrup.
And it is really simple.
Combine the cocoa and sugar in a saucepan and whisk until all lumps of cocoa are gone.
Add salt and water and mix well.
Cook over a medium flame, bringing to a boil.
Remove from heat.
When it cools, add vanilla and rum – add it when cool otherwise the flavors will boil away.
