Sweet Chocolate Soup with Froth

Hi, I’m Lisa from Stop and Smell the Chocolates. I’m a married mom of one amusing son and I love chocolate! Take a little chocolate break during your stressful day – come by and you might find a yummy recipe, a funny story, a cup of tea, a household tip, a lovely picture, or a new friend. I look forward to meeting you and sharing some chocolate!

With Mother’s Day fast approaching, you may be looking for a nice chocolate dessert to make (’cause every mom I know loves chocolate). This recipe is rich and delicious. The presentation is nice too. All chocolate fans will love it!

The recipe was from a magazine and sat around my house for a couple of years. I happened to have some mini liqueurs in my cupboard (either one could be used in the recipe) because I liked the bottles. I never really thought to get them all together and try it out until I had a blog full of chocolate! I’m so glad I did. Enjoy! It will be hard to share, but I highly recommend it. :)


  • 3 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 5 oz. bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
  • 2 oz. baking chocolate, finely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons Frangelico or Godiva chocolate liqueur


  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup chopped, toasted hazelnuts or almonds
  • 1/4 cup bittersweet chocolate chips or chopped chocolate


1. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, whisk together cream, sugar, and vanilla. Simmer, stirring several times, until reduced by a third, about 40 minutes.

2. Stir in chopped chocolates until well-blended.

3. Remove from heat and whisk in liqueur. Can be refrigerated up to 2 days ahead (gently reheat to serve).

To Serve:
Whip the cream until frothy. Then add the powdered sugar and vanilla. Continue to whip until the cream holds soft peaks. Fold in chopped nuts and chocolate bits. Place a large scoop of the whipped cream in the center of each serving bowl and pour the warm chocolate soup around the whipped cream.

Makes 4-6 servings

    I’m wondering if I can get my man to make this for me through some not so subtle hints….


    I’ll just make it for myself.


    I wonder how it would be with some raspberry puree on top…

    This may be somewhat like what our family calls Soppin’ Coco which we dip biscuits or bread in… yummmm!

    Anything with Chocolate and Hazelnuts is SOOOO yummy! Can’t wait to try it with a few shortbread cookies to dunk!

    I like the idea of dipping some cookies in it – yum! You can even eat this with just plain whipped cream, but you don’t need much of the chocolate soup – it’s very rich.
