Ingredients

  • 1/2 Cup sifted unsweeted cocoa powder, preferably organic and fair trade, such as Lake Champlain Chocolates
  • 1/3 Cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 Cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 Cup heavy cream
  • 3 Tablespoons sweet butter, cut into small pieces
  • Pinch of salt

Directions

In a saucepan, stir the cream and butter over medium heat until the cream just comes to a boil. Add both sugars and stir until dissolved. Reduce the heat and add the salt and cocoa. Stir briskly with a whisk until smooth. Remove from heat. Serve immediately or reheat slowly, stirring frequently in the top of a double-boiler over hot water, or in a saucepan over very low heat.
