Healthy Desserts: Quick Chocolate & Fruit Fondue

    Sure, the chocolate is indulgent, but this fruit-based dessert is healthier than most. Enjoy!


    • 3 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
    • 2 tablespoons heavy cream
    • 1 tablespoon instant espresso powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • pinch of salt
    • 1 banana, peeled and cut into 8 pieces
    • 8 1-inch chunks fresh pineapple
    • 4 strawberries
    • fondue forks or wooden skewers (available at most grocery stores)

    Place chocolate, cream, espresso, vanilla and salt in a medium microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on medium, stirring every 20 seconds, until melted (1-2 minutes). Pour the chocolate mixture into a serving bowl. It will be hot, so use your forks or sticks for dipping.
