Homemade Chocolate Sauce

An easy homemade chocolate sauce for ice cream and desserts made with cocoa, corn syrup, and evaporated milk for a smooth and creamy ice cream topping.

This is a classic ice cream topping that is delicious on not only ice cream, but other desserts as well. Try this on homemade triple chocolate ice cream.

Also try it drizzled on pound cake, cheese cake, pudding, or as a dip for fruits or strawberries.
