Chocolate syrup meets frozen yoghurt

This is for my DH who loves chocolate syrup on frozen yoghurt. In the olden days I used to make syrup with cocoa, but now the boss would like his syrup made with real bittersweet chocolate. Fine. But so far my attempts at chocolate sauce have ended up hardening when it meets the cold frozen yoghurt. And of course, it hardens when put into the fridge. Then it has to be rewarmed...but still hardens on the cold dessert. I don't mind the hardening, but Ed does.

How does one make a chocolate syrup which is thick and rich and chocolately enough, and still it stays in a semi-liquid form when it meets the cold frozen yoghurt?

Use cocoa powder. :raz:

Seriously -- the cocoa butter in the bittersweet chocolate is what's making your ganache-type sauce harden up in the fridge and on the frozen yogurt. A sauce that uses cocoa powder rather than bittersweet chocolate has way less cocoa butter to harden up.

Gotcha :rolleyes: and thanks. Another learning lesson. Of course. It might explain why there are no recipes for syrup calling for 'chocolate' per se.
