This recipe is from my dad’s mum, who I never met because she passed away before I was born. When my dad was growing up my nan went to work in a hotel kitchen to help make ends meet, and that where she learned the recipe for the most amazing hot chocolate sauce. My dad learned the recipe from my nan, and I learned it from him. It is super simple and you can adjust it to suit your taste.
- 2 tbls Butter
- 2 tbls Cocoa (if you are using a dark chocolate cocoa, you may want to reduce the amount a little)
- 2 tbls Sugar
- 4 tbls water
- Melt the butter, and mix the cocoa and sugar.
- Add the water and mix gently until it all has mixed through and smooth.
- Serve with vanilla ice cream.
