I love chocolate! Who doesn’t? This chocolate sauce is so super easy to make, can be changed to suit your taste buds and how you are feeling at the time and is great with fresh fruit, ice cream, drizzled in hot chocolates the list goes on.
I was at the fruit and veg market earlier in the week and saw some strawberries and instantly had this picture of me sitting in front of the fire dipping strawberries into chocolate sauce. YUM. As it’s winter it’s not the season for strawberries but being my birthday week, what the heck. This is about enjoying the richness in life and chocolate and strawberries definitely add to the richness of life. So in went the strawberries. On the evening of my birthday I made my chocolate sauce and decided to add cinnamon to it as it’s warming and adds a lovely aroma to the sauce. I also made Spicy Almond Milk to go with the strawberries and chocolate sauce and then sat in front of the fire and enjoyed my creations.
