Chocolate Dip for Fruit

There are two things I love more than just about anything (ok, maybe not more than cheese): fruit and chocolate. This chocolate hazelnut mascarpone dip is creamy, chocolaty, and nutty without being too sweet and it goes with all my favorite fruits (check out my Fruit Board for ideas!), but especially strawberries. 

Make this dip for any dessert platter! It even goes with some of my favorite breakfast, cheese, and sweet boards, like my Fondue Board, Rainbow Board, Bacon Bouquet Board, Waffle Brunch Board, Proud to Brie an American Board, and Chocolate and Cheese Board to name a few.

Two Other Fruit Dips I Love

I recently partnered with the California Avocado Commission to make a few recipes for avocado season. Check out these two recipes using avocados for extra creaminess: a Chocolate California Avocado Dip and, for those of you that prefer something without chocolate, a Honey Citrus California Avocado Dip.
