Rich Sugar-Free Chocolate Sauce/ Chocolate Syrup…
Looking for a sugar-free chocolate sauce recipe for my crepes (post to come soon! ) I found this recipe online and decided with the rave reviews I got about it, I definitely needed to share it with you! I wrote my comments about it after the recipe. Enjoy! Serve on crepes, ice-cream, or use in or on my chocolate cheesecake.
2 squares unsweetened chocolate
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup honey
1/4 tsp. salt
3 Tbsp. butter or margarine
1/2 tsp. vanilla
Combine chocolate, water, honey and salt in small saucepan. Stir over low heat until chocolate is melted. Increase heat to medium and cook until sauce is smooth and slightly thickened. Remove from heat and stir in butter and vanilla. Serve warm or cold. Makes 1 cup.”
- Water- you may want to leave this out for thicker chocolate…this is more of a syrup than a sauce especially with the water
- I found this a bit too sweet/rich for me….but when making it for others that aren’t used to sugar-free, keep the levels the same. (That’s how I made it and got lots of thumbs up.) If making for yourself and your family, try lowering the honey amount.
- You could use agave if you are vegan or prefer agave in place of honey.
- Margarine- I kept that in there only because I am quoting the recipe. But, really, leave it out! Use butter, earth balance, or coconut oil instead please!!!
