Berries and chocolate sauce

When there's no time to prepare a sweet treat to take on a picnic, I grab fruit and the eternally favourite chocolate sauce for dipping. Adding some molar-busting amaretti biscuits (see recipe on our website) is a good idea. Yes, you can buy the chocolate sauce, but the home-made variety takes only a few minutes and the flavour is so much nicer.


  • 125-150 grams dark chocolate or 175 grams white chocolate, roughly chopped
  • ½ cup cream
  • 1-2 tablespoons liqueur (see notes)
  • 2 punnets stawberries or cherries
  • amaretti biscuits (see recipe on our website)
  • icing sugar for dusting


  1. Put the chocolate and cream in a small, microwave-proof dish and heat on high power (100%) for 1 minute. Stir and if the chocolate has not begun to soften, return to the microwave for further 30-second bursts, stirring regularly.
  2. Do not allow the cream to boil. Stir until smooth before stirring in the liqueur.
  3. Serve at room temperature with strawberries or cherries and amaretti biscuits, dusted with icing sugar.

Cooks Tips

- Liqueurs that work well with a dark chocolate sauce include nut liqueurs, orange liqueurs and coffee liqueurs. - Liqueurs that work well with a white chocolate sauce include Galliano, Irish cream style liqueurs and orange liqueurs. - One punnet of strawberries or cherries with dips and biscuits will serve 4 people.
