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.
- 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/2 teaspoon cornstarch
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/2 cup orange juice
- 1 teaspoon freshly grated orange zest
- 1 cup chocolate syrup
- 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.
