White Chocolate Sauce – Random Recipes #16

Pudding, Sauces | 27th May 2012 | By

Well how exciting. For the very first time, Dom is allowing us to have a choice for this month’s Random Recipes – a limited choice perhaps, but nevertheless a choice. It’s a chance for those sadly neglected first and last recipes in a book to have their day and hopefully shine. So I collected all of my chocolate books together (and they are slowly growing) and asked CT to do his usual and select a random number between 1 and 10. Dah dah – for the second time For Chocolate Lovers by our local celebrity chefs the Tanner Brothers took centre stage. The first recipe in the book was for banana and chocolate souffle pancakes, the last for white chocolate sauce. Oh a difficult choice here, which to go for? Actually, it wasn’t in the least bit difficult because neither CT nor myself are particularly fond of bananas. White chocolate sauce it was then.

This hardly rates as a recipe at all. A simple process of melting chocolate with milk and stirring. I used a slightly less fussy method to the one in the book to reduce on washing up, but didn’t do anything fancy. I used Green&Blacks white chocolate because it is particularly vanillary. It would be fun to experiment with other flavours though – chilli, citrus zest, nutmeg, cardamom, cinnamon, black pepper to name but a few.

This is how I did it:

  • Broke up 100g bar of white chocolate (G&B) into a pan.
  • Added 125ml milk.
  • Placed on a low heat and left until the chocolate had melted.
  • Stirred until smooth.
  • Poured into a jug.

This was very sweet but quite tasty and was especially good over unsweetened strawberries. I also tried it over the chocolate ice-cream which will be featuring in my next post. As it’s such a quick and easy sauce to make and works well either hot or cold, it would be good served hot to spruce up anything that would normally be served with custard or cold as a substitute for cream.

      Mind you Alicia, if they are really good strawberries they might not need any adornment at all!

    Gosh that sounds good though. I am not a fan of white chocolate but make an exception for G&B Vanilla.

      I’m with you Janice when it comes to eating white chocolate on it’s own – it’s so very sweet. But I do like it in cooking!

    Not fond of bananas? 🙁 The white chocolate sauce looks good and it’s so versatile.

      Yes, we’re very strange I know. I quite like them in a good banana cake or in other forms where they are toned down a bit, but not eating them as a fruit.

    I quite often make a sauce just like this to go over berries. Makes a classy dessert in seconds without much thought. Yum.

      Then this one might be for you CC, although, if you like it thick, you might want to reduce the milk slightly – or make it with cream for a real touch of decadence!

      Because it’s easy to make Angie, or because he likes a sweet chocolate sauce?

    Just laughed at Dom’s earlier comment – it’s 40 C here so you probably could make a white chocolate sauce on your patio 🙂

    Some people don’t like white chocolate but I absolutely love it – that Green & Blacks bar with vanilla seeds is particularly delicious! This sauce sounds fab – so simple but gorgeous. Have you tried it over iced berries? Sooo good.

      Yes the G&B bar is a really good one and great for cooking as it has so much vanilla in it. Iced berries are not something I’ve yet tried – will have to remedy that.

      You know Johanna, I love custard, but actually if it came to a choice between the two? ……… :-S

    Ooh lovely! I used to work at a restaurant where we often had frozen berries with hot white chocolate sauce on the menu – the idea being that you poured the sauce over the berries and it melted them. It was gorgeous actually, but I definitely fancy trying it over fresh strawberries.

      You’re the second person to suggest iced berries, I really ought to try some. Do you stick them in the freezer? And if so for how long?

    I know some frown upon it bit I do ,one white chocolate and think G&B do a very fine bar of it! I have made white chocolate sauce before and find it works really well with soft fruits so I think this recipe is perfect!

    Simple is the best sometimes! This sounds fantastic. Sadly, don’t think the same effect would be achieved making it with soya chocolate 🙁 Damn dairy intolerance!
