Have you ever put something on your grocery list only to get to the store and realize it's not on the shelf?! Ughhhh .... isn't that the worst? That happened to me a few years ago when I needed some bottle chocolate sauce. I lived in a small town in the Midwest at the time, it was winter and I didn't want to drive to the other side of town to another store just for chocolate sauce. I had to find a way to improvise and ran across this recipe that I have been using ever since!

My kiddos go gaga for this stuff! I love that it's easy to make with things  I already have on hand! Whether you use it for chocolate milk, on ice cream or in your favorite desserts, there's no denying how delicious and versatile this homemade chocolate sauce is! Enjoy!
