Ingredients
  • 2 1/2  ounces 
    bittersweet chocolate, chopped into 1/4-inch pieces
  • 6 1/2  tablespoons 
    unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/3  cup 
    granulated sugar, (use 1-2 tablespoons more for a less-bittersweet sauce)
  • 1/4  teaspoon 
    instant coffee granules
  • 1   cup 
    hot water
  • 1/3  cup 
    dark corn syrup
  • 2 1/2  teaspoons 
    vanilla extract
Directions
1.
Combine chocolate, cocoa, sugar and coffee granules in a food processor. Process until finely ground, about 1 minute.
2.
Stir together water and corn syrup in a small saucepan; bring just to a boil over medium-high heat. With the food processor running, add the syrup mixture, then vanilla. Continue processing until the sauce is smooth, scraping down the sides as needed. (The sauce will seem thin, but will thicken during cooling.) Transfer to a container and refrigerate until chilled, at least 2 hours. Stir well before serving; if the sauce seems too thick, stir in a little water.
Tip:

1.
Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate for up to 2 weeks.
