Get your strawberries and pretzels at the ready, this boozy chocolate dipping sauce is coming for them! Add the alcohol of your choice - I went for amaretto (of course). The perfect Valentine's Day treat!
Cuisine American, English
Prep Time 10minutes
150gdark or semi-sweet chocolatebroken into small pieces
Place the broken up chocolate into a microwave-safe bowl, and partially melt in the microwave on medium, stirring every 15 seconds or so.
Once the chocolate is half melted, pour the double cream on top and pop back into the microwave for 30 seconds or so until the cream starts to bubble. Remove from the microwave and leave to sit for a minute.
Stir the chocolate and cream together until smooth. If the mixture separates or looks oily, add a couple more tablespoons of double cream and pop back in the microwave for 20 seconds or so. Immediately stir together, and hopefully the ganache will now look smooth.
Add the syrup, butter, and amaretto to the ganache and stir together well until the butter has completely melted and the mixture is smooth and glossy. Serve immediately with fresh fruit, biscuits, cake, or whatever else you want to dip in it!
You can make this dipping sauce up to 3 days ahead of time if covered and stored in the fridge. Before serving, warm up in the microwave for 20 seconds or so until you have a nice dipping consistency. The sauce also doubles as a boozy chocolate spread if left to chill in the fridge!
