How do you dare vs how dare you

I guess this is a question that a lot of people ask themselves.
I´ve checked on the internet and I m not quite happy with the answers.
How you dare go out with him? How do you dare go out with him?
At first sight I would say that the second one using the auxiliary is American English, and the fist one British English. According to some theads on the internet, how dare you is an exclamation and how do you dare is a question. Some people use a bare infinitive after it others use a too infinitive.
Can anybody give a clear explanation about it? I ´m more interested in American English, what the most common use in America?
