  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 3 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Combine water, sugar, cocoa powder, flour, unsalted butter, and salt in a medium sauce pan over medium heat. Bring to a boil stirring regularly.
  • Boil, stirring often, for 5 to 8 minutes or until the sauce thickens. You should be able to dip a spoon into the sauce, and when you pull it out, it coats the back of the spoon.
  • Stir in the vanilla extract.
  • Serve warm over ice cream. Keep in the refrigerator for up to one week.
