Nan’s Chocolate Sauce

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.
