Chocolate Sauce


  • 1/2 cupful sugar
  • 3 tablespoonfuls flour
  • 1 cupful water
  • 1 cupful milk
  • 3/8 cupful cocoa or 2 squares (or ounces) chocolate
  • 1/4 teaspoonful salt
  • 1/2 teaspoonful vanilla


Mix the sugar, flour, and cocoa (if the latter is used). Add the water; stir and cook until the mixture thickens. Then add the milk and cook over boiling water for at least 15 minutes.

If chocolate is used, cut it in pieces, add 5 tablespoonfuls of boiling water. Stir and cook until a smooth paste is formed. Add the chocolate to the other ingredients, then the salt and vanilla. Serve hot or cold over desserts.
