This easy dessert is a staple in our house!

Mostly because it ✔️’s all of my kid-friendly dessert boxes –

✔️it’s easy to make (less then 5 minutes from recipe to table)
✔️I always have the ingredients on hand to make this recipe
✔️low in sugar, but high in taste
✔️you can always find plenty of fun dippers in your pantry or fridge
✔️it’s warm chocolate.. so obviously that’s a win in my book
✔️it always blows my kids minds when I serve this.. melted chocolate.. can use hands to eat.. must lick plate right now

The first time I made this dessert, was on a whim.

After having a healthy salad for dinner, I needed chocolate in my life – STAT!

I reached for my normal sad handful of chocolate chips for dessert, but they just weren’t going to cut it.

I wanted something decadent but made in approximately zero seconds.

So I poured the chocolate chips into a small saucepan added a small spoonful of coconut oil and a pinch of cinnamon and let it melt away. Then I rummaged around the fridge and pantry for some healthy and fun dipping materials before calling my family back to the dinner table.

Our lives were about to be changed forever!

A little dramatic, I know. But we are talking about chocolate here!

This beyond-easy fondue blew our minds that night! There was no going back. Once we knew this chocolate fondue served with cut strawberries, sliced bananas, graham crackers and orange segments was an on the table, there really wasn’t any other dessert options for us.. certainly not a handful of sad little chocolate chips.

I kid you not, I probably make this dessert at least once a week, mostly because I want all-the-melted chocolate in my life:). I mix up the dippers depending on what I have on hand and what my girls request.

So yes, you can serve this fondue for dessert at your next date night, Valentine’s day dinner or special meal with the kiddos. Or you can just serve it on a random Tuesday because you deserve this easy and delicious dessert every night of the week.

  • 1 cup chocolate chips

Stovetop Method

  • In a small saucepan over low heat, melt the chocolate chips and coconut oil together, stirring the entire time. I have never had a problem with the enjoy life brand of chocolate chips clumping or getting weird by not using the double boiler method, but if you are more comfortable doing it that way, then please do so.
  • Add in the cinnamon and salt and stir together.
  • Pour fondue into small bowls and serve with dippers of your choice.

Microwave Method

  • In a medium microwave-safe bowl, add in all of the ingredients and heat in 30 seconds increments until melted, stirring between times.
