Easy Chocolate Sauce Recipe

Make My Saturday Sweet #136!

The other day, Amanda helped me make an easy chocolate sauce recipe that I got from my mother-in-law. It uses ingredients that you probably have at home. That's actually why we made this recipe, because it was already nighttime and the items we needed were on hand.

Easy Chocolate Sauce Recipe:

Ingredients:
100 g (3.5 oz) dark chocolate
100 g (3.5 oz) milk chocolate
1 cup sugar
1 cup water

Method:
Add all the ingredients into a medium sauce pan.
Heat until everything melts.
Allow to simmer until thick like pouring cream.

Notes:
I left ours simmering for an hour.
It really only thickens nicely once it has cooled.


Steps:






Please pin any photos that you like to your Pinterest boards and you can follow me on Pinterest too. Also, make sure you visit me on Instagram. Sometimes I capture some neat photos with my mobile phone that I haven't shared on my blogs.

Weekend Blog Hop


Hi Friends! My weekend linky is running over two weeks, since I'm spending this time with my family before my son heads back to university on Sunday. The kids are having their winter break and will begin their third school term on Monday. For those of you who aren't familiar with my blog, I'm an American mom living in South Africa.


Wishing you a great summer
or winter wherever you live!

Photo Moments
from this past week

Our Cats at Play




Amanda Meeting the Neighbor's Dog
(She was picking up loose stones in
the garden for pocket money.)




Boys Reading to Amanda
Jeremiah and Matt took turns reading to Amanda. The boys grew up together at YWAM (Youth With A Mission), so Matt is like part of the family. Jeremiah bought this book for Amanda when he was in Kalk Bay visiting a friend for a few days. It's George's Marvellous Medicine by Roald Dahl and Jeremiah finished reading it to her last night.




Tea for Two
Samantha put on this fun
tea party for her little sister.
