I began Baking For The Boys a little over a year ago while I was struggling with a colicky three month old-it kinda took my mind off of things. My writing and photos really suffered. I could tell in the writing-I had "Mommy Brain" and to tell of the truth, I was a moron. So I could honestly say that I've been happy with only a few (yes, a few) posts.
And just as I sat down and logged in today, I noticed that I had lost a follower. Ouch...Not that I'm taking it personal but is that the equivalent of being defriended on FB??? Just a question. I have a feeling this person has given up on the blogging world entirely. She hasn't posted in several months.
In this community where you can find thousands upon thousands of food blogs (many very much alike), the tiny and insignificant Baking For The Boys will still be trekking on. I have a new look (thanks to my sister-in-law) and still look forward to hearing from readers and making new friends along the way.
So...enough with this pity party! I need something to make me feel better...something like chocolate!!!
Yield: approx. 2 1/2 cups
1 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
1. In a medium saucepan, whisk together the water, sugar, corn syrup, and cocoa powder.
2. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Once it's just begun to simmer and boil, remove from heat and stir in the chopped chocolate until melted.
3. Let the Chocolate Sauce stand for a few hours to thicken
Store in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to 10 days
