This vegan chocolate sauce only contains three simple ingredients.  Use it for sliced apples, nice cream, or even your coffee.


  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 4 teaspoons maple syrup (or more depending on your preference)
  • 1 tablespoon dairy-free milk
  • Pinch of salt, optional


  1. Start by whisking together the cocoa powder, maple syrup, and pinch of salt (if using). This will take a little bit to blend together.  The ratio of cocoa powder and maple syrup is not super sweet.  Add more maple syrup if you prefer it sweeter, then thin it out with dairy-free milk.
  2. Then add any variations or eat it as is.  If you add something thick like peanut butter, you may need to thin it out again with more milk.


If the vegan chocolate dipping sauce is too thick add more dairy-free milk to thin it out or if you prefer it sweeter add more maple syrup.

If the sauce is too thin add more cocoa powder to thicken it up.
