Dark Chocolate Dipping Sauce

BY ALANA SCOTT REVIEWED BY Kate Watson (RD)

Chocolate covered strawberries are one of my favourite summer time treats. This decadent Low FODMAP dark chocolate dipping sauce is perfect for BBQs and hot summer afternoons. The chocolate sauce is very similar to a fondue sauce, except you don’t need a flame to keep it fluid. This recipe makes enough dipping sauce for at least one large punnet of strawberries and it goes great with other low FODMAP fruit like banana (just limit yourself to one serve of fruit).

  1. Roughly chop the dark chocolate.
  2. Melt the dark chocolate, white sugar, and dairy free spread (olive oil spread or butter) in a small saucepan over low heat, stirring continuously. Then whisk in the low FODMAP milk until the chocolate sauce is smooth. Taste the sauce and add more white sugar if needed.
  3. If you are restrained enough not to consume the sauce all at once, store it in the fridge and reheat it in the microwave.

Buying Tips

Choose a dark chocolate that doesn't contain inulin or high FODMAP sweeteners like honey, high fructose corn syrup, agave syrup or fructose. Also avoid dark chocolate that contains high FODMAP fruit or nuts.

Gluten Free Tips

If you are highly sensitive to gluten, check all packaged products, processed meat (like bacon), nuts, seeds and dried fruit do not contain a warning for trace gluten. If you are just on the low FODMAP diet you do not need to worry about this.

Dairy Free Tips

Use a dairy free spread or olive oil spread instead of butter. Butter is considered low FODMAP.
