What you’ll need
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1 clove garlic (minced)
2 shallots (minced)
.5 oz. semisweet chocolate (chopped)
6 oz (3/4 cup) tomato paste
2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon honey

1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
Pinch of cayenne
Makes about 1 cup
In a mixing bowl, combine the chocolate, tomato paste, sugar, honey, vinegar, cocoa, Worcestershire, mustard, chili powder, cayenne, and salt and pepper, and set aside. Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the garlic clove and shallots and cook them in the butter into they turn soft, about 2-4 minutes. Add the chocolate mixture and stir to combine with the onion and shallots. Allow the mixture to thicken for about 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Add the sauce to the dish of your choice. Our personal suggestion is to use this yummy chocolate-infused BBQ sauce with pulled pork sandwiches.
If you top your chocolate-infused pulled pork sandwich with our Mexican coleslaw, you’ll have yourself a unique, mouth-watering pulled pork sandwich. It’s a summer must-try.
The sauce will store for 1 week if kept in the refrigerator in an airtight container. Enjoy!
