Fresh Fruit with Chocolate Sauce

Make a fun and easy dessert for young and old alike. Everybody enjoys dipping stuff whether its sweet or sour sauce. All you need is fruit, chocolate sauce and your imagination. No fancy gadgets necessary. Also, the quantities of sauce are limited and so are the calories. And, remember, dark chocolate is supposed to have anti-oxidants, so its good for you.


  • 1/4 cup of dark or semi sweet chocolate (do not recommend milk chocolate-sauce, not chocolatey enough and too sweet)
  • 1/4 cup of warm skim or low fat milk
  • strawberries
  • bananas
  • any fruit cut into bite size


  1. Place the chocolate in a small glass container
  2. Microwave the chocolate in a medium or low setting (DO NOT USE THE NORMAL SETTING OR YOU WILL HAVE A BURNT MESS) for about 2 minutes. Check and if necessary, microwave for another 1-2 minutes. The first time you make the sauce, you might need to go slow since every microwave is different. The chips won't be completely melted, but will be very warm.
  3. Microwave the milk for 30 seconds. Milk should be warm, but not boiling.
  4. While the milk is in the microwave, stir the chocolate until it is completely melted.
  5. Add a 1tbsp of milk and stir it into the sauce. If it becomes lumpy, stir in another spoonful of milk. The sauce will be ready, when all the lumps are stirred out.
  6. It might take you a few extra minutes to make this sauce the first time. But once you've done it, you can have chocolate sauce ready in 5 minutes.
  7. Arrange the fruits on a platter with the sauce and serve. Will generously serve 2.

The recip can be doubled or tripled. Just adjust the time to microwave the chips and milk. For this recipe, always err on the side of caution for the microwave time or you will have burnt chocolate. You will certainly be able to get the pickiest eater to sample fruit this way.
