How Do You Make Thick White Chocolate Sauce for Coffee?

Ingredients needed;

Even though a lot of people incorporate quite a number of things such as butter in their recipe, there are just two basic ingredients that covers it all and gives the thick creamiest result. They are;

  • White Chocolate

A good quality white chocolate will give you a good quality white chocolate sauce. Whether your choice is a chocolate bar or chocolate chips, make sure to get a very good quality. If you have a favorite already, then go for that. If you do not, try out the famous richly flavored Ghirardelli white chocolate. If you are looking for something cheaper, go for the bars; only that you have to go through the stress of cutting it into smaller pieces before being used. For an easier white chocolate sauce journey, white chocolate chips are your best choice. They are already in small pieces and they melt faster.

  • Heavy Cream

For you to get that rich and thick sauce, make sure to get a heavy cream, and not anything light, or, half and half. Anything other than heavy cream will change the texture of the sauce to be lighter than the standard being aimed for. If you don’t have heavy cream at your disposal, you can use whole milk. You have the two? Mix it! Remember the mantra of this white chocolate sauce is “creamy and rich.”

Using heavy cream will also make your sauce a multipurpose for your saucing needs. You’ll want to use it on anything!
