I use my favorite instant espresso powder in this recipe, hence the name. Really though, you could call it Coffee Chocolate Sauce too, or perhaps Mocha Sauce. 🙂
Over the weekend I served Individual Chocolate-Coffee Mud Pies for my dad’s birthday. While it was amazing on its own, it needed a dessert sauce to feel complete — a warm one that would slightly firm up on the cold ice cream.
To say adding this sauce was a hit, would be a huge understatement! I know, I’m bragging about my recipes again, but in the case of this Espresso Chocolate Sauce recipe, I simply can’t help myself. People were licking their plates!
When you drizzle the scrumptious dessert sauce, while it’s very warm, or hot, over ice cream, it becomes a bit firm. Not like a “shell,” just a bit more solid, turning it into something that is reminiscent of a candy bar. I know! Insane!
The gift of Espresso Chocolate Sauce
It’s a fantastic edible gift!
What I should really be doing is bottling it and selling it! It’s that delicious. Am I selling you on it? I can only do so with my endless bragging and confidence. 😉
I won’t actually be selling it — however, I will be bottling it and giving it away as gifts. I think it’s perfect for a hostess gift. And it will be lovely when the holidays come around.
This is definitely one of those recipes that I think should be at the ready at all times. You just never know when you might want to impress somebody.
A touch of it on these desserts would certainly put them over-the-top:
Enjoy every drop of this Espresso Chocolate Sauce, or Coffee Chocolate Sauce, or Mocha Sauce, or whatever name you decide to call it.
Espresso Chocolate Sauce Recipe
*Makes about 1 1/4 cup
- Add all of the ingredients except the cream, to a small saucepan.
- Place the saucepan over low heat and let the chocolate and butter melt. (You can do this without a double boiler because of the butter -- chocolate alone shouldn't be melted this way.)
- Gently stir to blend.
- Add the cream and stir once again.
