Decadent Chocolate Fruit Dip
This Decadent Chocolate Fruit Dip is a crowd pleasing treat with a light, airy texture that’s as smooth as silk. Everyone will be shocked that it’s dairy-free!
With football season in full swing my mind has been flooded with ideas for munchie foods.
You know, things that you take a little sample of and then sneakily go back for fifteen times over the next couple of hours. Then when everything’s all gone, no one knows it was you that ate it all…muahahaha!
Normal people might call these finger foods but I personally like the term munchie. And this chocolate dip? It’s easily one of my favorite munchie foods of all time.
First of all, the texture is ridiculous. It’s surprisingly light and airy, yet silky smooth.
Then it has an incredibly rich chocolate flavor that borders between milk and dark chocolate. Not too sweet but not too bitter. Just PERFECT.
The craziest part is that there isn’t a lick of dairy in it.
It’s made with raw cashews, raw cacao powder, pure maple syrup, Silk Chocolate Cashewmilk, and a small handful of dates. That’s it!
And outside of soaking the cashews ahead of time, it takes all of five minutes to make.
You just throw everything into a blender and a creamy, dreamy chocolate dip is at your fingertips.
It’s clearly a great option for those that can’t have dairy but I honestly think it blows dairy-based chocolate dips out of the water. I’d feel confident serving it to the biggest of dairy lovers out there!
But of course you could make it as a special treat to have at home too. It’s one of those that’s too good not to share but I have a feeling once you try it, you’d be perfectly fine with keeping it all to yourself. :)
