two easy-peasy chocolate sauces (with agave nectar!)

These sauces are very versatile. I have given you examples for serving, but feel free to be creative! These are so easy-- I hope you try them! They may just give nutella a run for its money! :0)

Chocolate Peanut Butter Sauce (for serving with graham crackers)

  • 1/4 stick of butter
  • 1 tbsp. cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp. agave nectar
  • 1 heaping tbsp. peanut butter

-Melt about 1/4 a stick of butter
-Add 1 tbsp. cocoa powder
-Add the agave nectar and peanut butter
-Stir, and Melt again 15 seconds

Mint Chocolate Sauce (for serving with ice cream)

  • 1/4 stick of butter
  • 1 tsp. agave nectar
  • 1/2 cocoa powder
  • 4 Andes Mints

-Melt 1/4 stick of butter
-Add agave nectar
-Add cocoa powder
-add the mints and melt for up to 30 seconds, stopping to stir
-if it isn't pepperminty enough, add 2-3 drops of peppermint extract or oil.

Ideas for use:

Dip for pretzels, graham crackers, ritz crackers, etc.
Sauce for pancakes, ice-cream, bread, cake
Eat it plain, on a spoon
Any kind of seasonal dessert
Cool it and use like "chocolate chips" on desserts *like brownies, etc*
Have it with coffee or hot cocoa

That's it! So easy and so ridiculously delicious.  Share this snack with your husband and kids! :0)
