Makes one quart

This decadent sauce takes only minutes to prepare. Fat free "dippers" for this dessert fondue include cubes of angel food cake, marshmallows, fresh strawberries, banana slices, dried apricots and pretzels. Leftover sauce keeps well in the refrigerator and can also be served with frozen yogurt or ice cream.


  • 2 cups fat free evaporated milk
  • 6 tablespoons soft canola margarine
  • 1 1/3 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 1/3 cups dark brown sugar
  • 1 1/3 cups unsweetened cocoa powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract


Heat the milk in a double boiler over moderate heat. Add the margarine and allow to melt.

Add sugars and stir until completely dissolved.

Whisk in cocoa and salt until the mixture is smooth. Remove from heat.

Stir in vanilla extract.

Strain. Transfer to fondue pot with warmer.

Serve with plates, forks and a platter of bite-size "dippers" of fresh or dried fruit, cubes of angel food cake, marshmallows or pretzels.

Refrigerate any leftover sauce.
