Chocolate Peanut Butter Dipping Sauce

Today I made a saucy dessert for this month’s Sweet Adventures Blog Hop. This is a super easy and quick treat to whip up when you have friends over or to finish off a casual dinner.

One of my favourite treats is strawberries dipped in dark chocolate and I wanted to make a more decadent dipping sauce version. I substituted the normal cream used in a ganache in favour of sweetened condensed milk to give it a fudgey consistency. I added peanut butter for salt and crunch and a bit of butter to keep it smooth and shiny.

Serves: 6
Ingredients
  • 400g sweetened condensed milk
  • 200g dark chocolate (70%)
  • ⅓ cup peanut butter (I used crunchy but you can also use smooth)
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 punnets of strawberries (or pretzel sticks, marshmallows, cake cubes....)
Instructions
  1. In a medium saucepan melt the chocolate over a low heat.
  2. Add the sweetened condensed milk, peanut butter and butter and stir until warm and combined.
  3. Pour into serving dishes or a fondue pot and serve with fruit, pretzel sticks - whatever you like!

This dip starts to firm slightly after sitting at room temperature for a long period so it’s best to make this right before serving. A fondue set is a great way to keep the dip warm and smooth, however a quick blast in the microwave will bring it back to a good consistency!

    Oh dear… Once upon a time I bought a jar of salted caramel sauce and ate it with a spoon in 1 week. I’ll be doing the same with this sauce! The way to my heart is peanut butter and chocolate – LOVE!

    Oooooh, that looks good. My sonny would surely love it as he’s adored the peanut butter cups my mom used to make for him from the time he was a little boy

      Ooo I LOVE peanut butter cups! You could substitute the dark chocolate for milk chocolate for even more of a Reese’s taste :)
