I received this recipe from my friend Dana. She served it at a party at her house and just just couldn't stop eating it, it was irresistible! What I love about this recipe is that it can be made in advance, requires only a few ingredients, and doesn't harden up completely as it gets colder. I often serve this along with a platter of cubed fruit such as strawberries and pineapple. Add some long toothpicks, and even some cubed pound cake and you're in business. You may want to have a small ladle nearby in case someone wants to drizzle the chocolate over the fruit on a plate. Either way, it's complete yum!
2/3 cup light corn syrup
½ cup heavy cream or whipping cream
1 (8ounce) package Semi Sweet Chocolate for baking (I typically use Bakers or Ghirardelli
1. In a saucepan, mix corn syrup and cream. Bring to a boil. Remove from heat.
2. Break chocolate up into pieces and add to hot syrup mixture. Stir until melted
3. Serve warm as a dip for fruit
If I'm serving this for a party, I make the recipe ahead of time and put the dip in a microwave safe bowl. Then just heat it in the microwave prior to serving. Ifit is going to sit out for awhile, I just pop it into the microwave every so often to keep it warm. This is a great dessert to serve at a party with a bowl full of strawberries or fruit kabobs.I have also made this for my kids travel sports teams. I make it at home, transport it in a cooler and heat it up in the hotel room either in a microwave if it's available or a hot water bath that I set up in an electric skillet. This year I splurged and bought a mini slow cooker to heat it up in the hotel room. It's a nice treat to serve to the team with fresh fruit after a long day of competing!
