Looking for something special to pair with your champagne for New Years Eve? This decadent dip with fresh berries is easy and elegant. It makes a great dip for fruit, cookies or brownies. You can also use it to fill a cake or pipe into mini phyllo cups and top with strawberry slices. Or, you can do what I do and just eat it by the spoonful!
If you don’t prefer a coffee liqueur, you can try substituting your favorite liquor. Chambord, Frangelico or Grand Marnier are all good choices.
