Cherries with a Hot Chocolate Fudge Dipping Sauce
When cherries are in season and they are ripe, plump and beautifully shiny. This clean-eating chocolate fudge sauce recipe goes perfectly with sweet, ruby red cherries. This is a decadent treat, but with significant health benefits and nutritional value too.
These little fruits are packed full of antioxidants that help to protect against cancer and neutralise the ageing effects of free-radicals. Cherries also contain melatonin, a hormone that regulates the sleep cycle. The anthocyanins contained in cherries are anti-inflammatory and can help to relieve the symptoms of gout and arthritis.
- In a small saucepan, heat the coconut oil until it is melted and warm.
- Add the cacao and honey and stir with a wooden spoon over a medium flame.
- When the chocolate sauce is well combined and starting to bubble slightly, add the coconut cream and stir rapidly, beating the sauce until it is glossy and smooth.
- Pour the sauce into a dipping bowl and serve with the cherries.
