This drizzling sauce is dark, rich with just the perfect pinch of salt. Chocolate and espresso play together perfectly and our Espresso Sea Salt and Pure Espresso Extract take this simple sauce to a complex world of flavor. Gift this sauce to a friend with a tub of ice cream for a grown up hot fudge sundae kit!
½ cup butter
2 oz unsweetened chocolate, roughly chopped
½ cup cocoa powder
⅔ cup sugar
1 cup heavy cream
1 tsp Espresso Sea Salt
1 tsp Pure Espresso Extract
1 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
In a heavy saucepan over low heat, melt butter and chocolate, stirring constantly so chocolate doesn’t burn.
Add the cocoa powder, sugar and 3/4 cup heavy cream. Stir constantly until lumps are gone and sauce is heated through, about 2 minutes. Stir in remaining cream and mix until smooth and thick, about another minute.
Turn off heat and stir in the Espresso Salt, Espresso Extract and Vanilla Extract. Pour into small jars, let cool and then cover. Will keep in the refrigerator for a month.
