Dilettante's signature flavor experience, Ephemere, is the signature flavor of Dilettante Chocolates. This semisweet chocolate sauce is made with a lower percentage of cacao than its bittersweet counterpart but still boasts a luscious dark chocolate flavor. With years of experience, Dilettante presents an unparalleled chocolate addition to any ice cream or dessert.

This chocolate sauce features an heirloom family recipe handed down to Dilettante's Master Chocolatier, Dana Davenport. This flavor is crafted through a proprietary cooking method, bringing together caramelized butter, sugar, and cream to create a velvety smooth chocolate taste.


Ephemere is derived from the word "ephemeral," describing a brief and fleeting other-worldly experience. For those who haven't yet tasted Dilettante's Ephemere flavor, the experience is deeply savory, with a rich and full-bodied chocolate taste.

Dilettante cuts no corners while making its Semisweet Ephemere Chocolate Sauce. Instead of watering down this sauce with compound chocolate, oils, and fillers, Dilettante uses natural ingredients to deliver the best possible taste. In every drop of Semisweet Ephemere Chocolate Sauce, enjoy the taste of real cane sugar, natural vanilla, and cocoa butter.

Best chocolate ever! Forget what you think chocolate should taste like. This chocolate has a unique taste that is hard to explain. Characteristics: smooth, silky, rich (but not sickening rich), delicate, and complex. Every sip leaves you wanting more.

This is an excellent...which is to say...very elegant and delicious work of culinary expertise...we have always thought very favorably of Dillettante Ephemere sauces! YUM! Dave

Try this!
Crazy good!

To give this review some context, I have never once written a review for any food product of any kind. I was in my local grocery store looking to purchase some chocolate sauce without high fructose corn syrup (or corn syrup of any kind) and was surprised to find that even another locally produced, equally prestigious Chocolatier had corn syrup as their first ingredient. I'm glad they did, as it steered me to Dilettante's Ephemere SemiSweet Sauce - and what a find it was! HEAVEN. Make sure to warm it as it takes on an entirely different and better flavor than when out of the refrigerator.
I'm writing this review out of selfishness -- I'm hoping that more and more people will discover and buy it so that they never discontinue it! Out of this world!!!

Semisweet Ephemere Sauce

For an excellent, quick and easy mocha, using regular brewed coffee - In a large beer mug, put about 5 heaping Tbs dry milk, squeeze in about 3 or 4 tbs Ephemere sauce, and fill the mug with freshly brewed (from freshly ground beans)strong coffee and stir well.
