Homemade Dark Chocolate Sauce Recipe

Rich, silky, and super easy to make, this chocolate sauce is made by melting dark chocolate chips along with light agave syrup, water, and pure vanilla extract. That’s it! We call it our perpetual chocolate sauce pot because we keep it on our stove at all times. You can also refrigerate it and heat it whenever you want a spoonful of chocolate sauce on ice cream, frozen yogurt, cake, or cookies. Or, by the spoonful! We love to serve it with berry desserts too, like strawberry shortcake, chocolate peanut butter cupcakes, or homemade frozen yogurt.

This chocolate sauce has so many uses, you’ll be making your second batch in no time!
