In my childhood, I remember that my mom used to specially get vanilla ice cream for me and herself. I used to always have my vanilla icecream with chocolate sauce over it with chopped cashews and almonds. My mom and I would really enjoy our dessert every weekend.
And this time I wanted to try the easiest and quickest 5 ingredient chocolate sauce in my kitchen and to stop purchasing the readymade chocolate sauce from the store.
A dash of this 5 ingredient chocolate sauce in a regular cold coffee can add a lot of texture and flavour. Whether it’s regular pancakes, waffles, desserts, or even specific savoury foods, adding some chocolate sauce on top puts a smile on everyone’s face.
INGREDIENTS USED IN 5 INGREDIENT CHOCOLATE SAUCE
Chocolate sauce is thickened with flour but remains thin and pourable.
I’ve used all purpose flour in my recipe.
Cocoa powder’s rich taste and aroma is the agent behind ‘I can’t have enough of this sauce’ feeling! So make sure you pick the right one and add the good flavours.
The sweetener in this chocolate sauce recipe is caster sugar. The small-sized granules of caster sugar are perfect to use because they will easily melt into the sauce mixture.
