Mama’s Chocolate Brunch with Ghirardelli

Mother's Day is just around the corner, and what better way to show appreciation for the amazing moms in our lives than by treating them to a special brunch filled with decadent chocolate delights? Whether you're planning a gathering with family or a cozy morning in with just you and mom, this chocolate-themed brunch will surely make her day memorable.

  1. Setting the Scene: Start by setting a warm and inviting atmosphere for your brunch. Decorate the table with fresh flowers, elegant tableware, and touches of gold or pastel hues to create a sophisticated yet cozy ambiance.
  2. The Menu: Delight mom's taste buds with a delectable spread featuring chocolate in every dish. Here are some mouthwatering ideas to include:


Creamy Ghirardelli Hot Chocolate:



  • In a small saucepan, heat the milk over medium heat until it begins to steam, but do not let it boil.
  • Stir in the Ghirardelli chocolate sauce until fully combined and heated through.
  • Pour the hot chocolate into mugs and top with a dollop of whipped cream.
  • Garnish with Ghirardelli chocolate shavings if desired. Serve hot and enjoy the rich, creamy indulgence!


Ghirardelli Chocolate-Covered Croissants:


  • Fresh croissants
  • Ghirardelli Black Label Chocolate Sauce or Ghirardelli White Chocolate Flavored Sauce
  • Optional toppings: chopped nuts, shredded coconut, sprinkles


  • Slice the croissants in half lengthwise and lightly toast them.
  • Warm the Ghirardelli chocolate sauce in a microwave-safe bowl in 20-second intervals until smooth and pourable.
  • Dip each toasted croissant half into the warm chocolate sauce, ensuring it's fully coated.
  • Place the chocolate-covered croissants on a wire rack or parchment-lined tray.
  • If desired, sprinkle the croissants with your choice of toppings while the chocolate is still warm.
  • Allow the chocolate to set for a few minutes before serving. Enjoy these indulgent treats for breakfast, brunch, or dessert!


Ghirardelli Chocolate-Covered Strawberries:


  • Fresh strawberries, washed and dried
  • Ghirardelli Black Label Chocolate Sauce or Ghirardelli White Chocolate Flavored Sauce
  • Optional toppings: chopped nuts, coconut flakes, sprinkles


  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a microwave-safe bowl, heat the Ghirardelli chocolate sauce in 20-second intervals until smooth and melted.
  • Hold each strawberry by the stem and dip it into the melted chocolate, coating it halfway or fully, as desired.
  • Allow any excess chocolate to drip off before placing the chocolate-covered strawberries on the prepared baking sheet.
  • If using toppings, sprinkle them over the chocolate-covered strawberries while the chocolate is still warm.
  • Place the baking sheet in the refrigerator for 15-20 minutes, or until the chocolate has set.
  • Once set, transfer the chocolate-covered strawberries to a serving plate and enjoy these elegant and delicious treats with mom!


  1. Beverage Selection: Complement the sweet and savory dishes with a selection of beverages that highlight the chocolate theme. Offer a choice of hot chocolate topped with whipped cream and chocolate shavings, chocolate-infused coffee or espresso drinks, or even a chocolate-inspired cocktail like a chocolate martini or spiked hot chocolate.
  2. Personal Touches: Show mom how much she means to you by adding personal touches to the brunch. Consider creating a playlist of her favorite songs, crafting handmade place cards or menus, or preparing a heartfelt toast or letter expressing your love and gratitude.
  3. Sweet Sentiments: As a parting gift, send mom home with a sweet treat to enjoy later, such as a jar of your signature chocolate sauce accompanied by a handwritten note or a selection of gourmet chocolates in a beautifully wrapped box.


This Mother's Day, treat the special moms in your life to a brunch experience they won't soon forget. With a menu filled with chocolatey delights, thoughtful touches, and plenty of love, you'll create cherished memories that will last a lifetime. Cheers to moms everywhere!
