We finally celebrated my husband’s birthday with his family; well, we were only about a month late!
For his birthday he requested one of his favorite desserts. Angel Food Cake. I thought it would be nice served with a sauce of some kind, so we weren’t eating plain cake. This Chocolate Espresso Sauce turned out to be just perfect! It’s easy, chocolaty, and super yummy. I also like it that it isn’t a cream-based sauce.
I served the Chocolate Espresso Sauce over Birthday Angel Food Cake, and it was delish! With the leftover sauce, I stirred it into some almonds and cashews, for a chocolate-nut treat that I ate while we watched some 80’s movie! It was super yummy both ways. It would also be great over ice cream, or a little drizzle over fruit or pie would be lovely as well.
With that, I bring you this easy and yummy dessert Sauce.
