A mix between chocolate fondue and chocolate ganache, chocolate dip can be whipped up in minutes and provides an easy, creamy, and delicious dip to enjoy at parties and beyond.

- Semi-sweet chocolate chips – Good-quality chocolate is the basis of all chocolate recipes, whether you are talking about fudge or dip. In this case, using semi-sweet chocolate chips is the most common, but the chocolate chips can also vary from white chocolate chips to dark chocolate.
- Heavy whipping cream – Heavy cream is typically found in the same place as coffee creamers in the grocery store and is less liquid than milk. It also gives a nice rich flavor that is perfect for a special occasion.
- Vanilla extract – A great balance to this sweet treat, add a bit of vanilla to the bowl of chocolate to liven up the flavor and full chocolate dessert experience.
- Dipping items include pretzel crisps, pound or angel food cake, fresh strawberries, large marshmallows, and pineapple chunks.
How to make 3 ingredient chocolate dip
- Add milk chocolate chips to a saucepan. Heat over medium heat, constantly stirring until melted.
- Pour in heavy whipping cream and vanilla, and constantly whisk until smooth and glossy. The mixture may get a little clumpy since the cream is cold and the chocolate is warm.
- Continue to whisk melted chocolate, and it will all incorporate and become smooth.
- Serve immediately with desired dippers.
What to dip in chocolate dipping sauce.
The most common way to enjoy 3-Ingredient chocolate fruit dip is, of course, with fruit. Hands down, strawberries in chocolate are the most common, but coating them with chocolate can be enjoyed on many other items as well.
Drizzle chocolate sauce with dippers like squares of pound cake, bits of brownies, Rice Krispie treats delicious berries, and cut-up bananas.
The full chocolate bliss starts with an array of decadently chocolate dippers, so dial up the creativity and charcuterie board and get creative!
Does this chocolate dip harden?
It won’t harden at room temp, but it’s similar to spreadable butter at room temp. You still can scoop the chocolate out of the bowl, but note it won’t be drippy like when you first make it.
How to reheat Easy Chocolate Dip.
You can reheat it slowly in the microwave (in a microwave-safe bowl) to get it back to the original softer chocolate mixture state – I’d start with 60 seconds on 50% power and then stir, stir, stir! Repeat as many times as necessary.
Is this dessert dip recipe like hot chocolate dip?
The hot chocolate dip recipe isn’t the same type of dip. Hot chocolate dip is a viral recipe that mixes hot chocolate mix (hot chocolate powder), cool whip, and marshmallow creme. It’s meant to be served cold, like peanut butter apple dip or cherry cheesecake dip.
This chocolate dip recipe, however, is more of dipping fondue chocolate and uses simple ingredients and fresh fruit for a more chocolate drizzle experience.

To make life easier, heat the cream and add it to the chips to melt. Less risk of burning the chocolate.
