Chocolate and fresh orange flavor are a sublime pairing. Do you look at a bowl of ice cream or say a beautiful piece of cake and think they are just crying out to be covered in a delicious chocolate orange sauce? Is that bowl of fresh fruit begging to be covered with that same sauce?
Does fondue mean a chocolate orange dip is the one go-to sauce that you make first and lots of it?
This is a good lower-fat chocolate orange sauce perfect for ice cream, cake or fruit fondue.
1 cup packed light brown sugar
2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 ½ cup 1% milk
4 ounces bittersweet or semisweet chocolate, chopped
2 tablespoon orange liqueur
½ cup orange zest from a fresh Sunburst Orange (chopped into fine pieces)
Whisk sugar and cocoa in a small heavy saucepan. Gradually whisk in milk until a smooth paste forms. Add the orange zest. Bring to a simmer, whisking constantly. Reduce heat to low and simmer, whisking constantly, for 4 minutes. Remove from heat and add chocolate; stir until melted. Stir in orange-poaching syrup (or orange liqueur).
Notes: Make Ahead Tip: Will keep, tightly covered, in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks, but it will need to be reheated before using.
