Now that we have all the ingredients we need, let’s get started on making this irresistible Strawberry and Champagne Dessert Sauce:

Step 1: Preparing the Strawberries

First, we need to prepare our strawberries. Start by washing and hulling one pint of fresh strawberries. Then, slice half of the strawberries and set them aside for later. Take the other half of the strawberries and puree them in a blender along with 1/4 cup of water until smooth.

Step 2: Cook the Strawberry Puree

Next, pour the strawberry puree into a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add in 1 cup of sugar, 1/2 cup Champagne, and 1 tablespoon cornstarch dissolved in 1 tablespoon of water. Whisk the mixture together until it starts to simmer.

Step 3: Reduce and Cool

Lower the heat to low and let the mixture cook for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally until it thickens into a syrup-like consistency. Once done, remove the pan from the heat and add in 1 tablespoon of lemon juice. Allow it to cool down completely.

Step 4: Finishing Touches

After it has cooled down completely, add in remaining sliced strawberries, and its juice (if any). Stir everything together until all ingredients are thoroughly mixed. Additionally, you can also add a little bit of champagne to give it an extra boost of flavor!

And there you have it! This Strawberry and Champagne Dessert Sauce recipe is definitely a must-have when you’re looking to serve up something sweet with a little sparkle!

While this strawberry and champagne dessert sauce recipe is delicious on its own, there are a few substitutions and variations you can make to tailor the recipe to your tastes. Here are some ideas to get you started:

– Strawberry Champagne Cheesecake: Use this sauce as a topping for a decadent cheesecake. Try our recipe for a champagne cheesecake with a graham cracker crust and topped with fresh strawberries.

– Strawberry Trifle: Instead of just serving the sauce over ice cream or cake, use it as a layer in a dessert trifle! Layer the sauce with whipped cream, cake or ladyfingers, and fresh strawberries for a beautiful and elegant dessert.

– Champagne Reduction Sauce: If you prefer a thicker or more concentrated sauce, try making a champagne reduction first. Simply simmer the champagne and sugar together until it reduces by half, then follow the recipe as normal.

– Strawberry Jelly: For a firmer gel-like consistency, consider adding 1 tablespoon of cornstarch dissolved in 1 tablespoon of cold water to the mixture before bringing it to a boil. This will help it thicken up into more of a jelly texture.

– Pink Champagne: Swap out regular champagne for pink champagne for an even sweeter and fruitier flavor.

No matter how you choose to serve it, this strawberry and champagne dessert sauce is sure to impress!

This creamy Strawberry and Champagne Dessert Sauce can be made ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator for up to 4 days or frozen for up to a month, making it a perfect addition to your entertaining essentials. To make it ahead of time, allow the sauce to cool completely, then pour it into an airtight container and store it in the refrigerator.

When you’re ready to serve, remove the sauce from the refrigerator and let it come to room temperature before reheating on medium-low heat in a saucepan, stirring occasionally until warmed through. Be careful not to overheat the sauce as it may curdle.

If the sauce is too thick after storing it, you can add water or more Champagne to thin it out to your desired consistency. Conversely, if the sauce is too thin, you can whisk together 1 tablespoon of cornstarch with 1 tablespoon of cold water until smooth and add it to the sauce while heating on medium-low heat.

This homemade dessert sauce is so delicious that you’ll find yourself reaching for it all the time. Try swirling it into your champagne cocktail or squeezing it over freshly sliced strawberries for a decadent treat. Its versatility makes this recipe simply irresistible!

When it comes to making the perfect Strawberry and Champagne Dessert Sauce, attention to detail is key. Here are a few tips to ensure that you get the best out of this recipe:

Firstly, it is important to use good quality ingredients. Fresh strawberries are essential, so try and source them locally when they are in season. Additionally, using high-quality champagne or sparkling wine will make a significant difference in the flavor of the sauce.

Secondly, make sure you use the right amount of cornstarch. Too much cornstarch will result in a very thick sauce, while too little will create a runny consistency. It is important to measure out the correct amount accurately.

Thirdly, when whisking the egg yolks and sugar for the reduction sauce, use a spatula or a whisk rather than an electric mixer. This will prevent overbeating, which can result in curdled eggs.

Fourthly, be careful when reducing the champagne reduction sauce. Overreducing can result in a bitter taste and change the texture of the sauce.

Fifthly, when adding fresh strawberries into the dessert sauce, be sure to cut them into small pieces. This creates texture and ensures that every spoonful of sauce contains both flavor and texture.

Lastly, remember that practice makes perfect! If your first attempt at making this Strawberry and Champagne Dessert Sauce isn’t perfect, don’t worry! Simply take note of what went wrong and adjust accordingly for your next attempt.

By following these tips and taking care with each step of the recipe process, you can create a dessert sauce that is sure to impress your guests and leave them craving more.
