This rich and deeply chocolately chocolate sauce is decadent when drizzled over your favorite chocolate cake.  I like to pour it all over my flourless peppermint brownies.  My sweetie loves it with his ice cream.  My teenager uses it to make a hot chocolate. And I have been known to eat it right from the spoon.

However you like to eat your chocolate sauce, this is the perfect one.  I highly recommend keeping some in the fridge to satisfy your next chocolate craving.

      You could start with a 1/2 cup of nibs and then adjust. I just can’t guarantee that the sauce will be as smooth as with the powder. Would love to hear if you try this.
