Chocolate Dipping Sauce, a quick and easy recipe for all the chocolate lovers. The chocolate sauce is incredibly smooth and silky, and the perfect dessert for Valentine's Day.
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 sauce will be empty is seconds.
That I like chocolate is a complete understatement. I LOVE it! (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.
It only takes 10-15 minutes to make it, and it tastes a lot better than any store-bought chocolate sauce you might find - it be sure that the homemade one will be way cheaper, and you can make as much or as little as you like.
To warm it up again, just set it again over a bowl of simmering water, and it will turn again into a smooth sauce that makes you want to lick your fingers clean.
Looking for a less naughty but equally indulgent dipping sauce? How about my peanut butter fruit dip? It's healthy, light, and goes wonderfully well with any fruit too.
Ingredients needed to make chocolate dipping sauce
Rich, smooth, divinely chocolaty, this is every chocoholic's dream come true. And it's ridiculously easy to make. We only need 4 ingredients:
- double cream -or heavy cream
- chocolate - it can be either dark or milk chocolate
- golden syrup -
The butter can be replaced with coconut butter, and the golden syrup with honey.
Step-by-step photos and instructions
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?
Do not melt the chocolate in the microwave, it might be quicker, but you will not get the same smooth consistency like you do if you choose to melt it slowly in a pan set over a simmering pot. Plus, the sauce won't get as hot, which is a bonus point.
What to dip in chocolate sauce?
Fruit kebabs go so well with the sauce, and they are the perfect treat no matter the season. They also make you feel less guilty for indulging, in case you've been working hard to get that so dreamed 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.
Churros - are another perfect treat that can be dipped in chocolate dipping sauce.
OR how about some nice breadsticks, biscotti, pretzels, crackers? The possibilities are endless here. What l like most about dipping fruit 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 two cups 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.
