The sauce for this chocolate bread recipe hardens on the bread. The cook of the recipe writes – My Mom, Verlene Abshire made this when i was a lil girl. Now we make this for my kids and all their friends. They love it and we make a whole loaf of bread at a time.


  • 3 cups of sugar
  • 4 tablespoons of cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla
  • 2 cups water (milk may be substituted)
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • Loaf of sliced bread


Step 1

Fill a clear glass or clear cup container with cold water and set aside.

Step 2

In a medium to large saucepan, mix all ingredients together - the butter will melt while stirring.

Step 3

Over medium heat, cook and continue stirring until chocolate mixture looks and feels thicker.

Step 4

Mixture will be ready when a small bit of the chocolate dropped in the glass of cold water will stick together. Make sure the small glass/cup of water is clear glass so you can see the chocolate stick together and float (not on top).

Step 5

If the mixture splatters in the water or if the mixture looks watery when dropped in the water, continue cooking longer and test again.

Step 6

Depending on the size of your pan, start dipping 2 or 3 bread slices at a time. Working quickly flip the bread slices coating on both sides and continue until sauce is all used.

Step 7

For a richer flavor, milk may be used instead of water.
