Dark Chocolate Sauce
      01/26/04 02:25 PM

Here is a dairy-free version of a chocolate sauce with a hint of mocha to it. I made it for a neighborhood women's gathering at which the hostess made crepes and asked everyone to bring something to go in/on the crepes. I wanted to bring something chocolate that I knew I'd be able to eat. I think this sauce is really good and you'd never know it wasn't dairy-based.

Dark Chocolate Sauce
1 cup chocolate soy milk
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
3 T. margarine (or unsalted butter if you can tolerate)
1 tsp. instant expresso powder (I used 1 heaping tsp. of instant decaf coffee)
1 tsp. vanilla extract

Combine the first five ingredients in a small, heavy saucepan. Whisk over low heat until sugar dissolves and margarine/butter melts. Increase heat to medium and whisk until sauce just begins to simmer. Remove from heat. Mix in vanilla. Cool sauce.

I noticed it was pretty thin when I made it. It does thicken as it cools. If you want it more like a fudge sauce or at least a thicker chocolate sauce, you might try using a bit less soy milk.

I have used it on the crepes, over frozen yogurt, and to make hot cocoa with rice milk. Its been great for all of those uses. Hope you enjoy it, too!
