Chocolate Sauce

Cocoa is from a plant

 

It’s pretty awesome that just like with all THM desserts and sweets, we don’t have to convince ourselves that chocolate is salad. 😉 LOL!

 

 

I just adore this chocolate sauce recipe! Feel free to tweak the sweetener to your preferred taste, but I am pretty partial my recipe below! If you don’t have the sweeteners I use, check out the THM Sweetener Conversion Chart!

I’ll be sharing some of my favorite sweets that compliment this palatable and pleasing dessert dressing! So stay tuned!

Chocolate Sauce ~ S or E
Author: 
 
Ingredients
  • ¼ Cup Cocoa
  • ½ Cup Water
  • ½ Cup Xylitol, Ground in Coffee Grinder
  • 3 Tiny Scoops Now Better Stevia Extract Powder
  • ⅛ to ¼ tsp. Vanilla
  • Sprinkle to ⅛ tsp. Salt
Instructions
  1. Mix cocoa and water in a saucepan.
  2. On medium heat stir to dissolve cocoa.
  3. Add Xylitol and Stevia and stir. Bring to boil for 3 minutes, stirring constantly (I set a timer).
  4. Take sauce off heat and stir in vanilla and salt. Let cool.
  5. Makes about 1 cup of Chocolate Sauce.
  6. Store in an airtight container in the fridge. It should last for weeks (if it stays around that long;))!
  7. Feel free to heat in microwave for a few seconds if you are in the mood for hot fudge!
Notes
This is an S or E depending on what you pair with the sauce.

    Hi Jen, this looks great! Love all of your recipes!! I am new to THM and wondering if I could use Truvia and if so how much. TIA :o)

      Hi Angie! Welcome to the world of THM! So happy you joined the club! Yes:) You can definitely use Trivia in the chocolate sauce. According the to the handy dandy THM Sweetener Conversion Chart, looks like 1/2 cup of Xylitol is equal to 12 packets of Truvia (each packet of Truvia = 1tsp. and 12tsp. = 1/4 cup). Then I would add 3 more packets (3tsp.) Truvia to equal the 3 tiny scoops (1/32tsp.) of Now Better Stevia Extract Powder. So all together, 1/4 cup plus 3tsp, if I have my math right! Also, I would encourage you to grind the Truvia in a Coffee Grinder. I bought a Mr. Coffee Coffee Grinder at Walmart for about $18 and use it only for grinding THM sweeteners! It works great and because I don’t use it for anything else, I don’t have to wash it as much. 🙂 Hope this helps!

    Hi Jen,
    This looks delicious. Not to be simple but is the measurement for Xylitol the same for Truvia? Also, is it a half of cup before it is ground or after?
    Thank you for the recipe.

    • Jen says:

      Hi Nicole! The measurements are different for Xylitol and Truvia. Looking at the THM Sweetener Conversion Chart, 1/4 cup plus 3tsp. of Truvia (ground) would equal the Xylitol and Stevia Extract Powder! If it’s not sweet enough for you after you add the Truvia however, Add another tsp. at a time until desired sweetness. I measure the sweeteners first then grind them into powder. Hope this helps! 🙂

    Hi Jen 🙂 just wondering what i did wrong on my chocolate sauce…it turned out grainy and kinda crystallized 🙁 thanks

    • Jen says:

      Hi Missy! Oh no, I’m sorry to hear about your chocolate sauce! Did you grind the sweetener before adding it to the pot? If so, maybe it didn’t simmer/boil long enough? Xylitol can be a tricky sweetener to work with when using it in sauces that require heat. It takes some experimenting sometimes!

      • Missy says:

        Hi Jen, i dont react well to xylitol so i used erythritol but i did grind it and i boiled it for 3 min using a timer…would the erythritol do it ? Thanks

        • Jen says:

          Oh ok! Hmmm, I wish I knew! I’m not much of an erythritol girl…I know these types of sweeteners can be finicky. I would think we would need to either boil longer, or maybe 3 minutes was too long possibly? Those are my only guesses! Are you a member of the THM FB group? They are so helpful with these types of questions. I wish I could help more!

          • Missy says:

            Hi Jen, thank you for your effort to help,that is what matters 🙂 i am a member, so i’ll have to see if they know 🙂 thank you 🙂
