Cooking Instructions for Infused Chocolate Barbecue Sauce

  1. Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Throw in the garlic and onion and cook them until they’re soft. Usually, this takes about 4-6 minutes.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients to the saucepan and reduce the heat to a simmer. Stir occasionally for 5-8 minutes or until the sauce has thickened.
