What you’ll need

.5 oz. semisweet chocolate (chopped)
6 oz (3/4 cup) tomato paste
2 tablespoons packed brown sugar

1/2 tablespoon worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

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 using 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!
