  • 100g Good Quality Plain Chocolate (Milk works but wont be as rich)

  • Pinch Ground Cinnamon

Tablespoon of Fruit Syrup (Perfect if you are using the sauce for tinned fruit)

  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla Essence


  • STEP 1
    To make the chocolate sauce, tip the chocolate and butter into a heatproof bowl and place over a saucepan of simmering hot water. (take care to ensure the bottom of the bowl is not in contact with the water). Stir until the chocolate has combined with the butter.
