Homemade Chocolate Sauce

Please don’t judge, but yes I just got done making homemade chocolate sauce and you better believe I will be indulging in it at 10:30pm! Priorities people! 😉 We have a Mt. Everest of STUFF that was in the car from the baseball game that didn’t make it more than 10 feet inside our front door (really not sure how we fit in the car sometimes), the dishes haven’t been done since yesterday morning, and don’t get me started on everything that has managed to find a resting place on the kitchen counter! Today was jam-packed but very productive, we left at 7:30 this morning for school and work, then had to run straight to town after picking up #3 and #4 about noon to grab a few things for our family get together on Saturday (my momma bear is turning 6 … 0!), but then needed to be back by 3:15 to grab #1 from school, and then onto #2’s baseball practice early so we could head to the Mr.’s regional baseball game that was delayed an hour and then took almost 3 hours to play (which they came out on top, another very good reason to indulge in some chocolate so late in the evening), with a 45 minute drive the kiddos and I finally made it home about 9:30 this evening, whew!

My life (and kiddos, hehee) is crazy, stressful, overwhelming, frustrating, and completely blessed! At the end of the day we have clothes on our backs, a house to come home to, food in our bellies and love abounding. I thank God because there really isn’t much more I could ask for.

In just a few moments I will be pausing to enjoy all of these blessings and a little bit of chocolate. I started with David Lebovitz’s recipe and then just kinda flew with it! I had unsweetened chocolate needing some attention so decided to use it up.

Homemade Chocolate

1 1/2 water
2/3 cup sugar
2/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup of corn sugar (optional)
6 oz of unsweetened chocolate
Roughly chop chocolate. Place water, sugar, and corn syrup in a sauce pan and bring to a boil. Boil for 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat and add chocolate. Stir until melted. Use a mixer to blend chocolate sauce as is cools. Sauce will thicken as it cools. Store in airtight container in the refrigerator.
This didn’t turn out like the sauce I would image putting on top of ice cream, but it worked just fine in milk so the kids will be thrilled!
Today’s Question: What is your favorite late night indulgent? 

Updated 5/21/15 – In no way was this a picture of perfection, this morning our homemade chocolate sauce wasn’t so much of a sauce but instead a paste, oops! It is still usable to make chocolate milk which we had for lunch today. The favor was just as good as the Hershey chocolate syrup, but it didn’t dissolve like I felt it should. I will continue to work on this one but in no way will this chocolate “sauce” go to waste!
