Does anyone have a recipe for a sweet dipping sauce?

Asked by TitsMcGhee (8212 points ) August 5th, 2009

I am trying to make a sweet dipping sauce to go with a cinnamon sugar knot recipe that I’m making. I’m looking to make something similar to the sauce you get with Domino’s Cinnasticks – a sweet icing that is viscous enough to dip things into. The more simple the recipe and the more common the ingredients, the better. Do you know of anything along those lines?

Have you thought of premade frosting, warmed in the microwave?

I suggest using powdered sugar, vanilla extract, and just enough milk or water to get it to the texture you like.

To give you an idea of amounts there is this:

Thin Frosting (Icing)
1 cup powdered sugar
2 tablespoons rice/soy milk or orange juice
¼ teaspoon vanilla extract (Omit if using orange juice.)
Two or three drops of food coloring (Optional. Use a particular color for different times of the year.)

Mix all the ingredients and spread with a spoon over cinnamon rolls or other bread items.

Another thing you could try aside from the answer above, for something more out there, would be a strawberry coulis.

2 cups quartered hulled strawberries (about 12 ounces)
¼ cup water
3 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

Combine strawberries, water, sugar and lemon juice in blender. Purée until very smooth, then press through a fine mesh strainer to remove the seeds. Cover and refrigerate until cold. Coulis can be prepared one day ahead.

1 32 oz jar marshmallow creme
1 8 oz package cream cheese

Blend together, serve at room temperature.

This was a fruit dip that was popular at bridal showers in the ‘80s

I have a recipe for pistachio butter. You could just increase the amount of canola oil, or olive oil, to make it less of a paste and more of a viscous liquid.

Simply grind up a ten ounce bag of roasted salted pistachios, hulls removed of course, add the oil and sweeten to taste. An electric coffee bean grinder works best.

Just make a simple frosting and add more milk to make it thinner.

@PandoraBoxx I’ll have to try that with strawberries. Sounds delicious!

To give your icing immortality, use simple syrup instead of milk. Just whip together ½ cup of simple syrup (1 part water, 2 parts table sugar, simmered covered on the stove for 5 minutes) with enough confectioner’s sugar to give it the desired consistency. A tablespoon of light corn syrup may help keep it smooth, plus vanilla extract to flavor it like something.

Happy sugar coma!

It’s very easy and you can omit the chili if you don’t like it.

What about an orange flavored frosting to complement the cinnamon? Oh…sounds good to me!
