If you have a sweet tooth, you would know the feeling of eating a sizzling brownie topped with vanilla ice cream and further garnished with molten hot chocolate. When each ingredient is eaten alone, the experience is nothing compared to the dessert made with toppings, sauces, and proper garnishing.

So, if you want to create a heavenly indulgence for yourself, dessert sauces are a not-miss. Be it the rich chocolate ganache or fruity coulis, dessert sauces have all the power to beautify and improve the overall taste of a serving. You can even make batches, refrigerate them, and use them from time to time. 

Caramel Sauce

Caramel sauce is one of the most frequently used sauces. The beauty of caramel sauce is that it has a sweet and salty flavour which complements almost every dessert. You can just drizzle a spoonful over a scoop of ice cream, garnish a pie, mix in popcorn, and so on to make the desserts super indulgent.

Chocolate Ganache

Chocolate ganache is the richest and most indulgent dessert sauce, especially if you are a chocoholic. You can simply make it by whipping some heavy cream with melted dark chocolate. The rich chocolatey sauce will be ready and can be used to garnish as a dessert and also as an indulgent filling in croissants, tarts, puff pastries, and so on.

Berry Coulis

If you are someone who likes to have a fruity sauce added to their dessert, you can try making berry coulis. With your favourite berries like strawberries, blueberries, or raspberries, you can make a dessert sauce to complement the treats. All you need to do is blend and strain your favourite berries. Add in a squeeze of lemon juice or white chocolate to further enhance its taste.

Butterscotch Sauce

Just like caramel sauce, butterscotch sauce can be paired with almost every dessert of your liking. Unlike caramel sauce, it also adds a smoky profile to the dessert. Plus, it can be made with simple ingredients like butter, brown sugar, and vanilla essence.

Lemon CurdLemon curd is an impeccable dessert sauce that can also be used as a zesty filling for pies, tarts, cream rolls, and many more. You can make the sweet and zesty lemon curd by cooking freshly squeezed lemon juice, sugar, and eggs on low heat till you get a thick consistency. Once cooled, you can use it in your desserts and relish them.
