The dessert line includes:

  • Bittersweet Chocolate Sauce: intense flavor with just a hint of espresso. Serve it over ice cream or cakes, use as fondue or eat right off the spoon.

  • Rum Caramel Sauce: smooth and buttery with a burnt sugar flavor mellowed with cream and finished with dark Caribbean rum.

  • Spicy Dark Chocolate: sark French chocolate with the kick of chipolte peppers and cayenne and the sweet accent of cinnamon.

  • Peanut Butter Fudge: Belgian chocolate mixed with all natural peanut butter.

  • Milk Chocolate Caramel: creamy and smooth; smokiness of the caramel counteracts the sweetness of the milk chocolate.

  • Sassy Sauces are sold in a variety of Whole Foods Markets and other markets and shops throughout Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and New York.
