How to make Chocolate Sauce Recipe (Step by Step Photos):
1) Take cocoa powder, sugar and cornstarch in a saucepan.
2) Add milk and vanilla extract.
3) Stir well to combine and make sure there are no lumps.
4) Now turn the heat on medium-low. Keep cooking and keep stirring constantly. As soon as heats up and within a minute, it will thicken up and gets darker in color. Once it becomes thick (coat the spoon), turn off the stove and let it cool down.
As it cools it gets little more thick, so always keep little thin at above step.
Store in airtight container and keep in refrigerator.
Serving suggestion: Drizzle the chocolate sauce on top of vanilla ice cream, cake, brownies. This chocolate syrup can be used in making chocolate milkshake. Or just garnish on top of milkshake, cold coffee or smoothies.
