Chocolate Dipping Sauce Recipe

This simple sauce takes less than 2 mins in the microwave and is good on fruit and, for the true sugarholic, marshmallows!
Chocolate dipping sauce Recipe
You will need:
  • About 40g of cooking chocolate
  • Tablespoon of honey
  • Knob of butter
  • Microwavable dish
  • Fruit/marshmallows
  • Skewer/cocktail stick
Precise timings will depend on the power of your microwave, and if you don't have one you can use the traditional bain marie

Break the cooking chocolate into pieces and put in the microwavable container. In 30 second bursts, zap the chocolate until it has started to melt (For me this took two 30 second bursts). 

Remove the dish from the microwave and without stirring add the butter and honey. 

Put back in the microwave and zap until the butter has melted (for me this was just one more 30 second zap). 

Stir until smooth and serve while still lovely and warm. 

Additional options: you can add some cinnamon or other spices or a small shot of your favourite liquor. Just bear in mind with the latter that this will make the sauce runnier and so you may want to omit half of each of the butter and honey to compensate.
