This delicious sauce is great for dipping strawberries, drizzling on crepes, or adding to coffee for a mocha drink. Because the sauce isn’t prepared with high temperatures and doesn’t contain any waxy ingredients, the chocolate will remain soft and not harden completely.

Organic & Fair-Trade Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cacao powder (or cocoa powder)

  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar (corn free)

  • 3-4 heaping tablespoons coconut oil (4 tablespoons for dipping sauce, 3 tablespoons for drizzling sauce)

  • 3-5 tablespoons unsweetened non-dairy milk from the carton (generally less milk is needed for dipping sauce, more for drizzling sauce)

  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Instructions:

  1. Melt the coconut oil in a small stainless steel pan on the lowest heat setting.

  2. Add 3 tablespoons of coconut milk, starting with the lesser amount and adding more if needed. 

  3. When melted, gradually add cacao powder and powdered sugar, mixing well with a whisk.  Be careful not to burn.  Allow to cool in pan before using.

  4. Yields enough sauce for approximately 1 pound of strawberries. Key tip: Make sure you wash and thoroughly dry your organic strawberries before dipping.

  5. Store remaining sauce in an air-tight glass container for best results.  The sauce will thicken in the refrigerator and may require re-heating to thin out.

Fudge Variation:

By omitting the coconut milk and modifying the amount of coconut oil, you can make a simple fudge from this recipe.

  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar

  • 4 heaping tablespoons virgin coconut oil

  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Follow the directions above.  The mixture will be thick.  You can add nuts or dried fruit. Press into a small glass tray and refrigerate.
