Balsamic Chocolate Sauce

A chocolate sauce that goes way beyond dessert…

Balsamic Chocolate Sauce

This thick, rich Balsamic Chocolate Sauce is excellent drizzled over salads featuring fruits and cheeses like Feta, Goat, and Blue Cheese. It also can be used as a glaze for roasted meats and is great for topping your favorite dessert for a sweet and slightly tart memorable taste.

Balsamic Chocolate Sauce
Balsamic vinegar and chocolate blend perfectly for an easy to make sweet and tart Balsamic Chocolate Sauce to make everything from desserts to meats, cheese, fruits, and salad taste extra special.

Note that you don’t need to start with an expensive aged balsamic vinegar from a specialty taproom to make this sauce. Making your own is easy to do, and it will work just as well by reducing ordinary balsamic vinegar.

To get started, you’ll reduce the balsamic vinegar in a small saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat. When boiling, immediately reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer for 15-20 minutes, frequently stirring until the liquid becomes thick. The goal is to reduce the balsamic vinegar liquid to about one-third from its original half-cup to produce a thicker liquid that will begin to coat the spoon.

Meanwhile, in another small saucepan, add the water, sugar, cocoa powder, and salt. Whisk until smooth. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, stirring continually for five minutes to thicken. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla.

Let both mixtures cool to room temperature, combine the balsamic reduction and the chocolate syrup, whisking thoroughly until thoroughly combined and smooth.

Pour into a small pitcher to use immediately, or store in a sterile glass bottle.

This recipe makes ¼ cup of Balsamic Chocolate Sauce that is easily used in one or two servings. If you’d like to make more, the recipe can be adjusted easily using the servings slider in the recipe section below.

Here’s how to change the number of portions:

Go to the “Servings” quantity in the recipe section below. Hover over the servings amount, and a slider box will appear above the amount. Slide the toggle to adjust the desired number of portions you want to make. Please note that when adjusting the serving amount, the ingredient measures will change to decimal equivalents.

Being creative, cooking, fresh veggies, the violin, decorating for holidays, sewing, hand-quilting, cowgirl boots, country music, fresh herbs in pots, blowing dandelions to the wind, walking barefoot in the grass, hanging out with eclectic interesting people, reading, writing, warm lazy summer days, and yoga!

Gluten, cilantro, mixed vegetables (the frozen kind I grew up with), negativism, rudeness, narcissism, overstaying a welcome,
not helping out, liars, promiscuity, cockiness, know-it-alls, being overly-dramatic, goal-less-ness, poor hygiene, chauvinism, lacking a sense of humor, excessive competitiveness, Laziness, horrifying spellers, people-bashing, criticism and mockery of others and their beliefs, flakiness (because flaky people are really unappealing), more swagger than substance, people who constantly manage others (those folks who think they have all the answers…)

Lambrusco, my iPad, popcorn suppers, dark chocolate, cookbooks, Almond-Rocca, historical romances, sun-bathing, weekend coffee with a good book in bed, PBS cooking shows, romantic comedies, cozy sweaters, fuzzy socks, and fragrant bubble baths with soft music and wine…

Say please and thank you, LAUGH, Pray often, ENCOURAGE others, Be KIND, HONEST, HAPPY, Keep your PROMISES, Be GRATEFUL, Wash your hands, FORGIVE yourself and others, LISTEN, Have FAITH, Be CONFIDENT, Honor your parents, CHERISH your children and grandchildren, TREASURE your family, ABIDE in GOD’s love, Be POLITE, Guard your HEART, SEEK your purpose, FEED your mind, body and soul, Be HOPEFUL, Resist temptation, Lay your burdens down, TRUST your gut, CONNECT with nature, Know that GOD made you perfect just the way you are, SERVE others, LIVE to love, Be COURAGEOUS, Shine bright, OPEN your mind, RESPECT differences, HONOR your inner hunger, SING loud, Be PROUD of who you are, Practice PATIENCE, Never give up, WEATHER the storms of life, Say I love you, LOVE one another
