Thanks LadybugSam, I actually found the same recipe through 'One Good Thing' blog (in LOVE with this blog)! I'm gonna mix up a batch in a hour or so!

Alton Brown has a great recipe - here. It's quite tasty! I don't know that I would actually call it healthy, buuuuut I make it with organic sugar and cocoa, and no preservatives or thickeners, so it's probably a step up from pre-made. It keeps in the refrigerator for a couple of weeks in a squeeze bottle.

I boiled it a bit long one time and it turned into a wonderful fudge sauce for ice cream. FYI - The corn syrup is to prevent the sauce from crystallizing when it gets cold. You could leave it out or use another type of sugar, like brown rice syrup.
