Low Carb Chocolate Sauce

If your low carb ice cream isn’t chocolatey enough, add an easy sauce. Drizzle over scoops or pour into a tall glass for dipping pops.

 

How-To with Chips:

Melt low carb chocolate chips over low heat in a double boiler (or use a microwave.) Remove from heat, add a dash of salt and vanilla extract, then allow to cool.

We’re going for a runny-thick (but not too firm) consistency. Too thick? Butter or coconut oil thins the sauce, but reduces the hardness.

Cocoa Powder Chocolate Sauce

No chocolate? No problem. Use unsweetened cocoa powder instead. This variation isn’t as fluffy and thick as the melted chips version, but works well in a pinch.
