With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, I thought I’d share with you all a fun, fast and delicious recipe I found on BHG for No-Drip Chocolate Dip. This sweet and chocolatey treat is perfect for parties, special snacks or an intimate dessert for two and can be made well in advance. Plus, easy enough for the novice chef.
I made this dip with my 3 year old for a fun afternoon of Valentine card making.
We had a great day, plus had plenty of chocolate dip leftover for the next few days to share with company.
Here’s how you make it:
Start my chopping 8 ounces of unsweetened chocolate.
Put all that chocolate into a small pot and melt over low heat. Make sure to melt this low and slow. Chocolate says I love you. Burnt chocolate doesn’t really say the same thing!
Once the chocolate is completely smooth and melted, stir in a can of sweetened condensed milk. After you stir this in, the mixture will be a weird very thick texture. This is totally normal! Just keep stirring.
Measure out some light corn syrup,
and vanilla and stir those in. The corn syrup will make the dip shiny and the vanilla will make the chocolate taste even better.
Last thing to add is a little milk. The recipe calls for 1/2 cup, but I added a little more to get it to a thinner consistency. The recipe also calls for cinnamon, but I omitted that.
And just like that, you have some tasty chocolate dip!
I served mine with strawberries, bananas, apples and cubes of rice krispie treats but anything you have on hand would be tasty. Did I mention this is a great way to eat fruit? Everything tastes better dipped in chocolate!
