Chocolate Peanut Butter Sauce

Posted Sep 13 2010 3:30am

Oh chocolate and peanut butter.  It may not have been love at first bite, but you’re growing on me. I know I said I’ve never really been a fan, but lately I think I’m getting there.

This fudge sauce may be part of the cause.  Just three simple ingredients – bittersweet chocolate, natural peanut butter, and whipping cream, and you have a sauce that rivals anything you’d find at an ice cream shop.  It’s like a peanut butter cup in sauce form.

I recently made this for an “adult” ice cream social I went to (Read: sundaes and cocktails, genius!) and it was fantastic over vanilla ice cream, but would be easily heavenly over dark chocolate or banana ice cream.  It’s also great as a dipper for fresh fruit, in case you’re looking for something a bit healthier to balance out the richness of the sauce.  But I personally think it’s worth enjoying over ice cream, even if that does mean a little extra gym time.  This also seems like the kind of stuff that could take the edge off a bad day or an emotional breakup.  Not that I’m suggesting you eat your feelings.  But it is certainly cheaper than therapy and less troublesome than alcohol.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Sauce

Ingredients:

-1 3/4 cups heavy whipping cream
-8 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
-1/4 cup creamy natural peanut butter

Method:

Heat the cream in a saucepan over medium heat until it begins to bubble around the edges. Turn off the heat and add the chocolate. Cover the pan and let sit for 5 minutes. Add peanut butter and whisk until smooth.

Let cool slightly and serve. It can be reheated later using a double boiler or more conveniently, the microwave.
