I’ve been experimenting lately with a new version of hot fudge/chocolate sauce. I love my old recipe…but it has flour and butter. So I can’t eat it. Why do I need hot fudge in the first place? Well, I guess I don’t. But…I use it to take my cod liver oil 😛 I’m a wimp. But just a little chocolate sauce with my chocolate gel CLO makes it so much easier to take. So I’ve been experimenting. And I think I made a batch that is really good…and safe (if you consider cocoa safe for you). I used my old recipe as a starting point. And after some not so successful experiments here is what I came up with/what I like. Added bonus…one more way to get coconut oil in my diet 🙂 This tastes wonderful on mint coconut milk ice cream. As usual, I didn’t measure anything. And I made a small batch since I was experimenting. But I’ll try to estimate quantities. Not the best pictures, but you get the idea.
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1/3 cup water
1/2 cup honey
1 tsp. chocolate extract
2 Tbsp. coconut oil
Combine cocoa, water and honey in sauce pan. Bring to a boil and cook for about 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Stir in extract and oil. Mix until well combined. Poor into jar and store in teh refrigerator.
If the coconut oil rises/hardens let the sauce come to room temperature and stir before using.
