Chocolate Sauce

I made this for dipping Hot Pretzels, but you can use it for anything.

  • 1 1/2 cups ServingsServings


  • 1/2 cup low-fat milk or nondairy milk
  • ⅓ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup brewed coffee
  • 3 tablespoons agave
  • 2 tablespoons semisweet chocolate chips
  • Pinch kosher salt


Whisk together milk, cocoa, cornstarch, and coffee in a small heavy saucepan until smooth. Whisk in agave. Whisking constantly, bring to a simmer over low heat; scrape bottom of pan frequently with whisk to prevent sauce from sticking and scorching. Continue to simmer, whisking constantly, for 1 minute.

Remove from heat and stir in chocolate chips and salt until chips are melted and smooth.
