Brainstorming

We do our best daydreaming, uh, I mean, brainstorming at the farmers markets.

One of us will say, You know what I want? Vanilla ice cream with homemade chocolate sauce and peaches and blueberries.

And the other person will say, Mmmm chocolate waffles with dark chocolate chunks…

And we’ll lapse into silence as we both get lost in thought but later we’ll bring it all together:

Chocolate Waffles

Chocolate Sauce

Isn’t everything better with a little chocolate sauce? Ice cream, crepes, fruit, waffles, pancakes, sundaes, cocktails, yogurt, coffee drinks… I could go on for days about all the things that are made better with a little chocolate but then we’d never get to the point of this post!

Here’s how to make dreams come true, its simple, you only need four ingredients:

Chocolate Sauce: the ingredients

 

1/2 cup H2O

1/2 cup vanilla bean sugar

1/2 cup cocoa nib powder

a dash of salt

In a saucepan stir together the sugar, cocoa nib powder, and salt. Slowly add water and stir together. Onceย all the ingredients areย combined with no lumps, placeย the sauce pan over medium heat for 3 to 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. If not using immediately pour sauce into an airtight container and refrigerate for later enjoyment!
