    • 1 cup ketchup
    • 1/2 cup molasses
    • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
    • 1/4 cup dark chocolate, chopped
    • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
    • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
    • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
    • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

    3. Simmer: Place the saucepan over medium heat. Bring the mixture to a simmer, stirring occasionally.
