Chocolate Sauce

The essential chocolate sauce for all occasions and most diets including Dairy Free, Diabetic, Paleo and Vegan.



With few but tasty ingredients, this is a chocolate sauce to include in any healthy diet, in moderation of course. Like most foods of quality, a little goes a long way.

In the proportions recommended, the sauce will be thick at room temperature. Thin it with a little heat, more syrup or by adding a little water. For a diabetic diet, the maple syrup may be appropriate when it is eaten in a small quantity. Alternatively, replace the syrup with stevia and water in equal proportions, ie 1tbsp:1tbsp.
