  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • ¼ cup butter
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract


  • In a small mixing bowl stir together brown sugar and cocoa powder, set aside.
  • In a medium saucepan, over medium heat, add butter and milk, bring to a slow boil, and let it bubble for 3-5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Add cocoa and brown sugar mixture, stirring constantly and cook for 2-3 minutes and sauce is smooth.
  • Immediately remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Set aside to cool, to room temp. The sauce during this time will thicken.
  • Serve with anything or eat straight from the jar, I have done both.
