  • Take equal measures sugar, water and dark cocoa powder
  • Whisk together and let simmer for a few minutes on the stove (or reduce for a bit longer if you want a thicker sauce)
  • Delicious, cheap, and above all: so easy as to be foolproof! This keeps for a long time in the fridge and can be reheated. This sauce stays runny when cooled. It thickens if you keep it in the fridge, but if you stir it it'll go runny again
