I save a lot of money with this recipe.
Combine cocoa, sugar, and salt in a saucepan. Add water, and mix until smooth. Bring this mixture to a boil. Allow it to boil for one minute, be careful this does not over boil. Remove from heat, when this cools add the vanilla.
I adapt this to the microwave by bringing it to a rolling boil in the microwave (about 6 minutes in mine). Probably less in everyone else's. :-) Just put it in a bowl that is large because it boils over easy and makes a big mess.
This sounds interesting... I'll give it a try! The one I've been using is from a book that came with my old microwave. It is easy and very good on ice cream:
2 oz. unsweetened chocolate
1/4 cup milk
1/2 cup sugar
dash of salt
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
Combine chocolate and milk in 2-cup microwave safe container. Microwave on Med (50%) until melted, 1 -2 minutes, stirring 2 -3 times. Blend in sugar & salt. Microwave at Med-High (70%) until sugar is dissolved, 45 - 90 seconds. Stir in vanilla.
Next time I make this I will add a splash of chocolate liqueur along with the vanilla to liven up the flavor even more.
