DARK CHOCOLATE SAUCE

Dr. Gott's No Flour, No Sugar(TM) Diet
by Peter H. Gott

This rich sauce is delicious drizzled over Strawberry Crepes (recipe above), Cinnamon Poached Pears, or simply used as a dip for fresh fruit. Using low-fat evaporated milk and fruit sweetener significantly cuts calories while still delivering creamy sweetness. Remember, though, that baking chocolate is high in fat, which means it still packs a fairly hefty calorie punch. Use this sauce sparingly.



• 1/2 cup evaporated milk
• 1/2 cup fruit sweetener
• 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
• 3 ounces unsweetened baking chocolate, roughly chopped


Place chocolate in a non-reactive bowl.

Place milk and fruit sweetener in a small saucepan over medium-high heat and heat until hot to the touch but not boiling.

Pour hot milk over chocolate in bowl, add vanilla extract, and let sit a few minutes until chocolate has softened.

Stir until chocolate has melted completely.

Serve sauce immediately, or cover and refrigerate up to one week.

To serve, heat in microwave just until hot and liquid.
