This superfood-packed, Raw Chocolate Fondue is so easy to prepare, requiring only 1 small bowl, a fork or spoon and 30 seconds to mix.
It’s a dessert which you don’t even need to think about, right until the moment you want it, which is usually how my nights turn out… I cook dinner, eat dinner and fool myself into thinking I won’t want dessert… and then it happens – I really want something sweet! So last night, after quickly concluding that a lone pear just won’t cut it, I made this chocolate dipping sauce to have with it. It took about 30 seconds to prepare and you can make it too!
Did I mention it’s totally versatile? You can have it hot or cold, eat it straight out of the bowl (like I did last night), or chill it until firm to make my Chocolate Stuffed Dates. The latter is a dessert worth dying, or at least holding-out for, as the smooth and creamy chocolate [fondue] centres compliant the naturally super-sweet dates perfectly.
Please note that there is absolutely no sugar in this recipe and this is why it is best served with naturally sweet, fresh fruit such as pear or banana.
Serves 2 civilised adults or 1 greedy guts
- dessert bowl
- small fork or spoon
- microwave or double boiler (IF you’d like it hot)
- 2 tbsp nut butter*
- small pinch sea salt
- 2 tbsp Coconut Oil
- 1 tbsp Raw Cacao Powder
- 1 tsp Vanilla
*I used raw cashew butter. Almond or macadamia butter would also be appropriate. Don’t use peanut butter as it’s flavour is too overpowering.
- Place all ingredients into a small bowl. I used a dessert bowl.
- Mash and stir with a spoon or fork until smooth – about 30 seconds.
- Serve immediately if you’d like it at room temperature, OR warm it in a double boiler or in the microwave for approx 20 seconds for a hot dipping sauce.*
*The warmer the fondue, the runnier it will be. However, the inclusion of chia seeds will assist in thickening the sauce, if desired.
Serve at room temperature or hot with naturally sweet fruit that has a low acid content such as ripe pear or banana.
