Chocolate Sauce

This is my basic low-fat chocolate sauce, which I love over almost any dessert. It goes well with other chocolate- and fruit-based desserts, as well as with cheesecakes, soufflés, jelly rolls, coffee cakes – just about any sweet!

1. Whisk the sugar, cocoa, chocolate chips, corn syrup and water together in a small saucepan. Bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer uncovered for 5 minutes, or until it is slightly thickened, stirring occasionally. Add the evaporated milk and simmer for 1 minute

2. Pour the sauce into a bowl and cover. Reheat if it gets too thick.

1/3 cup granulated sugar
