A swoon-worthy dipping sauce for your next dessert board
We're big on platters here at Ciroa, so much so that we don't stop at using them only for cheese and charcuterie - they're also one of our favorite ways to serve dessert.
Perfect for allowing you and your guest to select just a few (or many) favorite morsels, everyone gets the the chance to try a selection of different sweet treats. And for the host, they take next to no time to put together.
One thing we like to do is offer a chocolate dipping sauce as part of the board - this is SUCH a great way to enjoy fruits (strawberries and bananas were made for this!) but it's also ideal for pretzels, breadsticks, marshmallows and well, pretty much anything.
And in the unlikely event that you have leftovers, it also works beautifully on ice cream and pancakes, or anything else that could do with a little hit of chocolate.
Our current fave? A simply swoon-worthy sauce that is perfect for a Valentines (or Galentines) dessert option. It's simple to make and most importantly, truly irresistible.

5 fl oz / 150 ml thickened cream
