Perfect Chocolate Recipe for Dipping

If there’s anything I love more than dessert, it’s a dessert with only 2 ingredients! And there’s no easier one than this chocolate dip.

I love this dipping chocolate because it’s perfect for entertaining. The dip is so simple to make, and then you can serve it on a platter with all kinds of dippers to go with it. It’s my kind of entertaining – easy, simple, and delicious.

If you’ve ever made chocolate ganache, you can make this chocolate recipe for dipping. It’s as simple as heating cream and pouring it over chocolate. Stir, and you get the best dip ever.

2 Ingredient Chocolate Dip

Chopped Semi-sweet baking chocolate or bittersweet baking chocolate: Use a good quality chocolate!

Heavy whipping cream: This helps the chocolate melt and be nice and smooth.

How to Make Dipping Chocolate

  1. Place the chopped chocolate in a heat-proof bowl.
  2. Heat the cream until it’s just simmering, and pour it over the chocolate.
  3. Let it sit for 30 seconds, and then whisk until the chocolate is melted and the mixture is smooth.

What to Serve with Chocolate Dip

Fruit: We love this with sliced bananas, whole strawberries, pineapple slices, and sliced apples.

Cookies: Wafer cookies, crispy chocolate chip cookies, gingersnaps, and Oreos are great as dippers!

Pie Dippers: Make a batch of pie crust dippers to scoop up all the chocolate.

Other ideas: If you love salty-sweet, try pretzel twists or rods or buttery-style crackers like Ritz.

Expert Tips

Warming tip: Don’t let it boil when you heat the cream. It should be simmering and steaming hot. If it boils, it can burn. You can warm the cream on the stove in a pan or heat it in the microwave.

Serving tip: For parties, I like to place a bowl of dip on a large platter, cutting board, or even a sheet pan. Arrange all of the dippers around it so everyone can help themselves. It’s a really pretty presentation.

How to store chocolate dip: Leftover dip should be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

How to reheat it: The dip will harden as it cools. To reheat, warm it in the microwave and stir it well before serving.
