Mexican Chocolate Sauce


From EatingWell:  September/October 1995

Chocolate syrup makes a convenient base for a delicious sauce; cocoa powder deepens the chocolate flavor and cuts the sweetness without adding fat, and orange and cinnamon lend complexity.

  1. Stir together cocoa, cornstarch and cinnamon in a small saucepan. Whisk in orange juice and zest and stir over medium-low heat until simmering and thickened. Add chocolate syrup and stir until the sauce is heated through. Serve warm.
