Mum's Chocolate Sauce

You know that awful moment when your boyfriend/husband is out, and there's no chocolate in the house? It's late, you're in your pajamas, it's cold outside... but you really, really need chocolate? Yes, I think we all do. That's where this recipe comes in. Guaranteed to give you that chocolate hit trickled over ice cream, pudding, or even just spooned straight out the pan... I won't judge.

This is Mum's recipe from her old tea-stained relic of a scrapbook and should remain a family secret forever, but you need to have this in your pocket for those cold, chocolateless nights. It's also so simple you can make it faster than the time it takes to put on your Uggs. So here it is. Use it well, my friends. 

To make:
6 oz sugar
150 ml water
Tsp vanilla essence
3 rounded tbsp cocoa powder
3 tbsp honey


Combine the ingredients together in a pan above a medium heat, stirring to remove any lumps. Bring to the boil, and boil fast for 5 minutes until the sauce coats the back of your spoon and is a rich, syrupy consistency. 
And that's honestly all! Let it cool a bit before tasting, otherwise you'll burn your taste buds off. I know it's hard, but be patient. Fuzzy burnt tongue is rubbish.
