Mezirici chocolate sauce

this is the B.E.S.T. chocolate sauce i have ever had! it's our family's traditional recipe, originally from my great grandmother (so i named it after the town where she lived - Mezirici (pronouced mezyreechee)), but i learned it from my wonderful mom, who always made and makes it to top: our delicious b-day cakes as kids, christmas pastries, crepes with strawberries and whipped cream and icecream sundays! ....or we would just secretly take a spoonful.... :)


                          3/4 cup sugar
                          50 ml water
                          125 g cool butter
                          2-3 tbsp dutch cocoa

...you might think that i made a mistake with the amt. of water, but i didn't - it really
is the key to making it "creamy"...if you want it more runny, just add a little water.

1. prepare bowl (heat resistant) with butter - small slices or cubes, add cocoa on top
2. combine sugar and water in a pot, med-high heat, stir until disolved and comes to a boil
3. pour the hot sugar-water over the butter-cocoa and stir until all ingredients combine (1-2min)

p.s. the other day my sis sent me the link to banana icecream, and i'm just "ok" w/ bananas, but this was actually really good(and heathy!) and has just one ingredient! and made a great combo w/ the chocolate sauce...since the icecream is so healthy, we don't have to feel guilty about the chocolate, right ;) ?

  1. I made this last night after seeing.your post... yummy! Your mix of imperial and metric measurements cracks me up. Do you use salted or unsalted butter?

    1. unsalted! here we don't even have salted, but even if we did, i wouldn't use it ;)! and as for the measurements - i actually have an explanation for that, but it would take too long to write, so i'll just put it this way: i like being different :)!

  2. "Secretly take a spoonful?" Just one? On days of desperation, I make myself a bowlful of it and eat it by itself. Why adulterate the yumminess? :P
