  • Break chocolate into pieces and place into the bottom of a small saucepan. Place over low heat and consistently stir to melt. You want your burner at the lowest possible setting and you don't want to walk away during this melting process. Once the chocolate is almost completely melted turn off the burner and keep mixing until completely smooth. Alternately, you can do this over a double boiler if you're worried about scorching the chocolate.
  • Add in sweetened condensed milk, corn syrup and salt. Stir until completely smooth and shiny.
  • Slowly stream in milk to thin out the dipping chocolate to the desired consistency. As the dipping chocolate cools, it will get thicker, so depending on if you'd like to serve this warm or cold will determine how much milk you'll want to add. You may want to heat chocolate mixture up again on low if using cold milk.
  • Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Pour into bowl and serve with strawberries, cookies, bananas, brownies, rice krispie treats, etc..


MICROWAVE DIRECTIONS: place chocolate and sweetened condensed milk into the bottom of a microwave safe bowl. Microwave in 30 second bursts, stirring after each interval. Once the chocolate is mostly melted, keep stirring until its completely melted. Whisk in corn syrup, salt and milk until you get the desired consistency you want. If using cold milk, you may want to microwave again for another 30 seconds to warm it up again. Finish by stirring in vanilla. Serve or store as desired.
