White Chocolate Sauce Ingredients

White Chocolate. You can use white chocolate chips or white chocolate bars for baking. You will not, however, want to use white chocolate candy melts, as those will cause your condiment to harden quickly. 

Coconut oil. We recommend including coconut oil in your sauce. Coconut oil can be found in a jar at most local grocery stores or bigger box stores such as Costco or Sam’s.

If you wish to substitute coconut oil for something else, you can use the same amount of melted butter, or melted margarine instead of coconut oil if you prefer. 

Sweetened Condensed Milk. Sweet condensed milk is another recommended ingredient. This comes in a canned form from your grocery store.

Because the milk is sweetened and in a condensed form it helps to sweeten your sauce and mix it all around delicious. 

Whole Milk. We also recommend include a little bit of whole milk to help thin the sauce. You can choose to use your favorite type of milk, or even use 2% milk fat-free milk, or even heavy cream if you want.

You can also substitute regular milk for silk, almond, or coconut milk in this recipe. 

How to Make White Chocolate Sauce

There are two methods you can use to make this white chocolate sauce. The first is to use microwave, the second is to use a saucepan on your stovetop. 

Microwave Method 

In a microwave-safe bowl, add your sweet and condensed milk, whole milk, and coconut oil.

Microwave for 30 seconds at a time until the milk is warm to the touch. Do not allow the milk mixture to boil. 

Remove from the microwave, stir together, and add your white chocolate.

Allow the mixture to rest for a couple of minutes until the white chocolate is soft.

Use a whisk or rubber spatula to stir until the mixture is combined. 

Add to your drink or another recipe as desired. Enjoy!

Into the saucepan, add sweetened condensed milk, coconut oil, and white chocolate. Stir continually as the mixture heats.

Continue stirring until the chocolate chips have melted and the mixture is combined. Do not let the mixture boil.

Remove from heat and add in milk. Stir until combined.

Add to your other recipe or drinks as desired. Enjoy! 

How to Serve

This recipe is best when enjoyed after it is freshly made. Please note that if it is stored in a cool location, the mixture may harden, and need to be heated once again for it to melt. It is best enjoyed when freshly made. 

How to Store Leftovers

At room temperature. Because this recipe does contain perishable items, it should be kept at room temperature for no more than two hours before it needs to be refrigerated. 

In the fridge. To refrigerate the leftover white chocolate sauce, transfer it to a microwave-safe container, such as a glass storage container, or glass jar.

Seal with a lid. Place in the fridge for up to one week.

There are a couple of different ways you can reheat your leftover recipe. After it has been chilled in the refrigerator, your sauce is likely hardened and will need to be heated in order for it to become a sauce again. 

In the microwave. We recommend storing your condiment in the fridge in a microwave-safe container so that it is easier to reheat.

Simply remove it from the fridge, take the lid off, and microwave for 30 seconds at a time until it is soft. Be sure to stir it every 30 seconds so that it does not burn.

In hot water. You can also submerge your mixture as long as it is sealed in an airtight container in hot water. This will help to gradually warm the sauce. 

On the stovetop. Another way you can reheat your white chocolate sauce is on the stovetop.

To do this you’ll want to transfer the leftover recipe to a small pan and place it over low heat.

Stir the mixture continuously so that it does not burn. Once melted you are good to use the leftover sauce. 

Tips & Tricks

Heat Slowly. No matter if you are mixing the ingredients for the first time, or reheating them, it is best to heat your milk products slowly so that they do not scald.

If you scald the milk or burn the chocolate, it will ruin the sauce. Because of this, we recommend that you heat the mixture slowly and stir it often. 

Add Milk to Thin. Milk in this recipe is used to help thin your sauce. You can add as much or as little as you prefer.
