Last week we had so many yummy leftovers we had two leftover nights (yey!). One thing I like to do when we're having leftovers since I'm not cooking a whole meal, is to whip up a new dessert. (And I'm talking s-i-m-p-l-e, like a box cake or even slice and bake cookies if I'm pressed for time.) Last week I made a family favorite- a yellow (box) cake and my Nana's chocolate sauce. This chocolate sauce recipe is SO yummy and easy, I encourage you to try it!
Nana's Chocolate Sauce
3 cups sugar
2 tablespoons flour (generous)
3 tablespoons cocoa powder (generous)
pinch of salt
Stir dry ingredients well.
Add 2 cups milk. Use a whisk to stir while cooking in saucepan. After sauce cooks and thickens a bit, add:
1 tablespoon butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
Our family has always enjoyed this sauce over yellow cake, but I suppose you could serve it with any type of cake, ice cream or fruit. Enjoy!
