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
Fill a clear glass or clear cup container with cold water and set aside.
In a medium to large saucepan, mix all ingredients together - the butter will melt while stirring.
Over medium heat, cook and continue stirring until chocolate mixture looks and feels thicker.
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).
If the mixture splatters in the water or if the mixture looks watery when dropped in the water, continue cooking longer and test again.
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.
For a richer flavor, milk may be used instead of water.
