How To Make Chocolate Dipping Sauce

We all love chocolate, don’t we, but how to make chocolate dipping 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.

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.

How do you make chocolate dipping sauce?

Rich, smooth, divinely chocolatey, this is every chocoholic’s dream come true. And it’s ridiculously easy to make.

All we need is double cream (or heavy cream), milk chocolate, butter and golden syrup. The butter can be replaced with coconut butter, and the golden syrup with honey.

Just add the cream and chocolate pieces to a pot set over a pan with simmering water, and once melted add the butter and syrup and mix until smooth.

Easy peasy, right?

What to dip in chocolate sauce?

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.

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?

Can I use the chocolate sauce as a glaze for desserts?

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.

    My kids always are amazed at how they make the chocolate dips at the dessert fountain and have been bugging me to make some at home. I don’t know if I will make a fountain, but I sure can make this simple dip for them. They will be excited to dip all the strawberries we pick this summer.
