We know, we had you at “chocolate”. We all love it, but the sugar situation is not cool. Lakanto baking chips are sweetened with monk fruit and have a zero glycemic index impact. We think it’s worth the splurge for this occasional treat, and are pleased to present our Sugar-Free Chocolate Sauce.
Quality is paramount, which is why we tested our Sugar-Free Chocolate Sauce rigorously, under various conditions, and in multiple applications. Our findings indicate that is is excellent as a topping for ice cream, crepes, drizzled over fresh fruit skewers, spread between cake layers, and as a ganache on cupcakes. It can also be kept warm on the lowest setting of a mini crock pot for fruit fondue. In extreme circumstances, it can be eaten directly with a spoon. Anything for science, right?Print
Sugar-Free Chocolate Sauce that’s vegan and dairy-free.
- 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk (chocolate, plain, or vanilla)
- 1/2 cup Lakanto Sugar Free Chocolate Chips, packed
- 2 tsp Lakanto Powdered Sweetener
- 1/8 tsp pure vanilla extract
- Pinch of salt
- In a small, heavy bottom pan, bring almond milk and Lakanto sweetener to a near boil over medium-low heat, stirring to prevent burning as needed.
- Remove from heat, add Lakanto chips, vanilla, and salt. Let sit 30 seconds, then whisk until smooth. Scrape bottom and sides of pot as needed to make sure all chocolate is incorporated.
Refrigerate up to a week, soften in a hot water bath to liquefy for reuse.
To use as a ganache, increase chips to 2/3 cup and prepare according to directions. Dip the tops of refrigerated or frozen cupcakes and allow to set before serving.
