We all love chocolate, don’t we, but how to make the best chocolate sauce in 5 minutes (or even under)? Nothing simpler, all it takes is 4 magic ingredients and ta-dah: all done! You really won’t believe it is homemade and you’ll wonder why you haven’t done it before. Just get some nice fresh fruit like strawberries, bananas, satsumas, even apples, and dig in. Yup, the bowl of chocolate will be empty is seconds. How yummy!
That I like chocolate is a complete understatement. I LOVE it! And so does my husband! (And three quarters of the planet, most probably). But sometimes we get fed up with the good old chocolate bar and a bit of a change is needed. I for one tend to get stuck into a routine where l eat (pretty much) the same thing over and over again until l can’t possibly see it again in front of my eyes. And wouldn’t that be a shame to get fed up with chocolate? It would for sure. So this chocolate dipping sauce is the answer.
Rich, smooth, divinely chocolatey, this is every chocoholic’s dream come true. I am yet to make some churros, the famous Spanish dessert that goes down a treat with a nice chocolate dipping sauce, but that’s on my list, not to worry. But these fruit kebabs l made go so well with the sauce, and they are the perfect summer treat. They also make you feel less guilty for indulging, in case you’ve been working hard to get that so dreamt beach body and now you’ve got yourself caught red handed with a big bowl of chocolate sauce. I mean, fruit are healthy, right? Of course they are, so go ahead and dip them in the silky chocolate sauce ?
And do you know what else can be dipped into this scrummy sauce? Marshmallows!!! Of yes!!! Use some skewers and create your own marshmallow kebab, and that’s one treat and a half. OR how about some nice breadsticks, biscotti, pretzels, crackers? The possibilities are endless here. What l like most about dipping feuit though, especially strawberries, is that you can make a delicious dessert for a romantic dinner in two. And that in just 5 minutes!!! Valentine’s Day might be well behind us, but who said you need to have an excuse for a romantic dinner?
Another amazing thing about this chocolate sauce is that it can be used in any dessert with chocolate filling. Take out the golden syrup, and you’ve got the perfect chocolate cream for this amazing Chocolate Roulade. Or what about a nice glaze for some yummy donuts? Or a finger-licking topping for a lovely homemade ice cream?
Double cream and a chocolate bar may be enough to make a sauce, but to take it to the very next level, you have to add butter and syrup, they make the sauce shiny and silky, and deliciously runny. The amounts l listed below make one cup of chocolate sauce, so increase the amounts accordingly if you need extra. Right, enough said, l need to go now, there’s some luscious chocolate dipping sauce and fruit waiting for me.
