Introduction: Homemade Chocolate Sauce

About: Christian, MECE student, amateur guitarist, occasional pipe smoker, human, probably not dead. yep.

well, I was just fiddling around with chocolate bars in my kitchen and stumbled upon this. note: this is not syrup. this is not viscous in any way. it is a sauce for adding to coffee, ice cream, or drinking straight up. :)

Step 1: Obtain Materials

you will need 4 necessary things for this.
1. a bowl
2. half and half (half cream, half milk)
3. a chocolate bar
4. a containment device

optional
some sort of mixer (like for coffee, tea, etc.)

Step 2: Measure and Pour Cream

you will need one-half cup of cream for this. measure it and put it in your bowl.

Step 3: Heat in Microwave

heat the cream for 45 seconds, depending on your microwave. if it's too cold, microwave it for longer.

Step 4: Break Up Chocolate

break up the bars of chocolate into the smaller bars. if your chocolate doesn't have any of those, just break it with your hands or a knife (an old knife would be best.)

Step 5: Add Chocolate to the Mixture

stir in the chocolate, adding a peice every few seconds. it doesn't matter it the first one is melted, just keep adding them. once you've added them all, continue stirring until it looks like the second picture.

Step 6: Microwave and Stir

microwave again for 30 seconds, then stir vigorously.

Step 7: Put Into Container

put your sauce in a container, and place the container in the refrigerator.

Step 8: You're Finished

you have now made chocolate sauce. please note that you could multiply the ratios to make more sauce, and also experiment with more or less cream or chocolate to see what happens.

    Hey! I wish you'd labeled this in the title as for coffee etc. Because I had my hopes up for something for ice cream and it left me all deflated. But that's okay. I like a cup of mocha in the morning and this would be a great way to do that. Thanks! Luv ya, Tashi :)

    Awesome! Now you should get a boost in views since the main image isn't an empty bowl.

    that was an accident. I uploaded all the pictures first to save time, but didn't realize it put them all on the first page.

    Ditto what Brennn10 said. What did you use your chocolate sauce on?

    I covered some bananas in the chocolate sauce, pushed a popsicle stick through the bottom, set it on tinfoil and a pan, and placed it in the freezer. It sure beats the ones that come from the store. Especially when you use fresh bananas. I might just have to do it again today and make an Instructable.
