I made a version of it tonight and it was great. I got lots of praise for it! It really tasted good. That background taste of chocolate but not overly sweet or anything. Very much like mole. I actually had a total disaster making the recipe so I had to adapt it!!
Michael--it may not be on the website yet. I ended up using a recipe from the Hershey's company. Here is my modified version.
Chocolate BBQ Sauce
- 1 1/2 cups ketchup
- 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
- 1/4 cup of melted Hershey’s Special Dark chocolate chips
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1 small onion, diced
- 2 cloves garlic, chopped
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 tbsp cracked black pepper
- 1 tsp paprika
- 1 tbsp prepared mustard
- 1/2 tsp hot sauce
In a sauce pan saute onions and garlic in olive oil, cooking until tender. Stir in lemon juice, salt, pepper, paprika and hot sauce. Simmer for 5 to 6 minutes and reduce heat. Stir in ketchup, mustard, vinegar and Hershey’s. Simmer for 15 to 20 minutes.
*I actually did not do the onions, garlic or olive oil part (that is part of my cooking disaster story that you don't want me to go in to!!). I also added 2 tb of sugar to the end, because I thought it was too vinegary.
After I made it, I couldn't tell if I liked it or not. But once I put it on the grilled chicken, it was great. My husband loved it.
