Celebrating National Dairy Month in June with foolproof 5 Minute Silky 5 Minute Chocolate Sauce AND The Dairy Good Cookbook!
Happy National Dairy Month! Milk, cheese, sour cream, cottage cheese, cream cheese, yogurt, ice cream, ice cream covered in chocolate sauce – this chocolate sauce – I love it all! I was the reason my mom had to make “in-between” grocery shopping trips just for milk because I would guzzle it glass after glass.
Today, I am just as dependent on dairy – from my cheesy pasta sauces (like this Skinny Garlic Parmesan Mozzarella Fettuccine Alfredo), to my cremas (like this Pineapple Sriracha Crema), to my obsession with everything cream cheese/cheesecake (like my Key Lime Cheesecake Sugar Cookie Cups), to my dressings (like my 5 Minute Blender Tomatillo Avocado Ranch), to smoothies (like my Aloha Bliss Pineapple Smoothie) to my Easy Creamy Caramel Sauce – I am in love with dairy – thus I am in love with The Dairy Good Cookbook.
The Dairy Good Cookbook is from America’s 47,000 dairy farm families celebrating the people who work hard to bring us delicious, wholesome, nutritious, versatile dairy foods and products. The book shares 113 tried and true, scrumptious, easy-to-make recipes starting with Sunrise Breakfast featuring delicious farm fresh breakfast creations such as Fresh Berry-Stuffed French Toast with Vanilla Yogurt Sauce, Summer Vegetable Frittata and Pancake Stratas.
Next, it’s time for Midday Lunch featuring a huge variety of soups, sandwiches, salads, pizzas, and on and on such as Toasted Italian Chicken Subs, Blackened Fish Tostadas with Watermelon Salsa and Caraway Cheese Soup. Are you drooling yet? I am. Especially because I am looking at the gorgeous photos of each of the recipes. Oh my goodness. I don’t know what to make first!
Next, it’s Sundown Supper including recipes such as Parmesan Chicken Fettuccine, Slow Cooked Beef Stroganoff and Roasted Sweet Potato Empanadas with Garlic-Red Pepper Dipping Sauce. Finally, let’s finish our epic palate-pleasing day with After Dinner Desserts such as Triple-Layer Chocolate Cake with Vanilla Buttercream, Honey-Roasted Caramel Pie and/or Caramelicious Milksicles. I want to try every recipe, but I have a special place in my heart for caramel – actually, half of my heart might be dedicated to caramel. Smooth, rich, creamy, velvety caramel. I want that Caramellicoius Milksicle. Now.
There also is another complete section dedicated to sides, and special occasion recipes because The Dairy Good Cookbook does it right. What I love almost as much as the recipes, is getting to know the dairy farmers behind the recipes through stories and beautiful on-the-farm photography – from farmers like John and Kim Koepe who run the family farm that has been passed down from generations (since 1875) in Wisconsin to Lucas and Alise Sjostrom who quit their city jobs to join the dairy farm of her parents. But one thing all the farmers seem to have in common is their love and pride for their farms, cows, and products. As John Koepke says, “We love what we do here on our farm. We work outside with our family, with the cows and with the land. We produce a food we’re proud of. Every day is Earth Day when you make your living off the land.” In The Dairy Good Cookbook, dairy farmers share their secret (and not so secret) stories, traditions, and family recipes that have been passed down through generations. So in honor of the dairy farmers that make so many of our family recipes possible, I am excited to share one of my own family recipes made possible by dairy – our 5 Minute Silky Chocolate Sauce!
Whether it was family game night, family movie night, family ice cream night, or simply dessert time, this 5 Minute Silky Chocolate Sauce would almost always make an appearance. A very brief appearance because its smooth, creamy, rich chocolate deliciousness wouldn’t last long with five eager children and two adults ready to inhale it. Inhale it drizzled on popcorn, enveloping pretzels, bathing churro chips, smothering brownies or ice cream. This chocolate sauce made every family night better and all my memories more delicious.
And still does today.
To make this easy chocolate sauce, melt butter in heavy cream…
Add your favorite semi sweet chocolate and melt until smooth…
Then stir in vanilla and optional cinnamon and a splash of corn syrup (if you are opposed to corn syrup, it is still delicious without) and your Silky Chocolate Sauce is ready to make every memory more delicious.
