Recipe: Hot Chocolate Sauce

  •  1 cup of boiling water,
  •  Pinch of salt,
  •  1 square of chocolate,
  •  ½ a cup of sugar.

Cook all together slowly until it is the consistency of maple syrup, or thicker if desired. Just before serving, add one teaspoonful of vanilla. This will keep indefinitely, and can be reheated.
