  • Easiest Chocolate Dipping Sauce Ever


    Easiest Chocolate Dipping Sauce Ever -

    I’m hosting a dessert party this coming Sunday, and I created this chocolate sauce for strawberries, bananas, and pound cake. Basically, I wanted a fondue but without the flame, since there will be small children present. This chocolate sauce fits the bill nicely, staying fluid at room temperature and taking only a couple of minutes to put together. The butter is optional but adds a velvetiness and gloss to the sauce.

    Easiest Chocolate Dipping Sauce Ever
    Makes approximately 3/4 cup

    1/2 cup good quality chocolate chips or chopped chocolate (I like semisweet chocolate but I think dark chocolate would work nicely too; milk chocolate might be too sweet)
    1/4 cup 2% milk
    1 tablespoon butter (optional)

    Combine chocolate and milk in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave on high for one minute. Remove and whisk until well-combined and smooth. Add butter and stir until butter is melted and chocolate sauce is smooth.

    1. That sounds really tasty!

    2. This was a great dip… if I hadn't doubled and used just a little to much milk. Therefore, mine was runny.

    3. The sauce is great…I used 3/4 cup of semisweet chips though and agree the butter makes a very pretty, glossy sauce. Thank you for this recipe!
