Chocolate & Peanut Butter Sauce


Dessert at my Mum's is always a tradition, every night of the week. Whether its something extravagant, a nice warm pudding, some chocolate or just a few scoops of ice-cream its always something I look forward to before I hit the sheets. She 'whips' its up with ease and really makes it all so easy. My very own Mary Poppins.

This is one of my Mum's recipes she gave to me last year and I've been having it with vanilla ice-cream ever since! Its so delicious and simple but best of all you'll probably always have the ingredients you need to make it already at home. I mean, who wants to pop out to the shop after dinner to grab a few things. Certainly not me, I'm a pj's after dinner kinda gal with no desire to change out of them anytime before 8am.

If your making this for children, I suggest you use milk chocolate instead of dark or half milk, half dark as it will reduce the richness of the sauce. If you love dark chocolate like me, then go ahead with the 60% dark chocolate.

Ingredients

  • 1 C cream
  • 50g good quality dark chocolate (60% min)
  • 1 tbsp golden syrup
  • 2 tsp peanut butter
  • vanilla ice-cream
  1. In a small saucepan, heat the cream and chocolate over medium heat until melted. 
  2. Add the golden syrup and peanut butter, using a whisk to get rid of any lumps.
  3. Pour desired amount of sauce over 2 scoops of vanilla ice-cream.
