Inspiration and Ideas

Mexican Chocolate Sauce

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.

Silky Chocolate Sauce

Bittersweet chocolate and cocoa powder turn into a rich, silky chocolate sauce in a matter of minutes. Simple enough to whip up when that hot fudge sundae craving hits.
