Vegan Chocolate Fondue Sauce Recipe

Chocolate sauce using cocoa powder recipe

Looking for an easy vegan chocolate fondue sauce? This recipe is one of my favourites, and as March’s seasonal produce list said, we should be getting ready for strawberries! I do say this with a huge asterisk of course – these strawberries were not grown in England, and neither was the cocoa, but the chocolate sauce definitely was made here – by my own fair hands!

You may also notice that I’ve used molasses sugar in this recipe – this is what sugar is like without the refining and bleaching! I was surprised to find it in my local supermarket so I picked up a bag, but you can use whatever sugar you have in the cupboard. What’s great about it, is that due to its unrefined state it’s surprising high in iron and calcium! A note on cooking with molasses sugar though – it has a very strong taste, similar to black treacle (as treacle is a by-product of the molasses removed during the refining of white sugar) and for this reason cannot always be switched for white sugar – for a start, it’s not so great in tea! I will be doing a blog on the best plant-based sugar alternatives, but until then, I’d recommend using honey, fruit-based syrup and molasses sugar interchangeably.

Of course, due to the sugar content this recipe is 100% a treat, and although it doesn’t use refined sugar, it still should be considered a dessert rather than healthy snack. What’s nice is that it’s a completely vegan, dairy- and gluten-free dessert!
