My best chocolate sauce recipe is simple: equal parts sugar, water, and cocoa powder (not hot chocolate mix). Stir together the cocoa and sugar, then gradually add the water and stir it in well. Cook until the sugar melts. Then store it in a closed jar.
The simplest, cheapest chocolate sauce is this: sprinkle cocoa powder on your ice cream. As the ice cream melts, it forms chocolate sauce.
Next: tomato and bean salad
