The chocolate will stiffen if it gets cold, so enjoy it while it’s still warm. Skewer and dip anything you like—pear slices, dried apricots, even marshmallows.

Make Ahead Tip: Equipment: Fondue forks or bamboo skewers


  • 3 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon brewed espresso (see Kitchen Tip)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 banana, peeled and cut into 8 pieces
  • Eight 1-inch chunks fresh pineapple
  • 4 strawberries
  • Tip: Kitchen Tip: If you don’t have an espresso maker, look for instant espresso powder at your supermarket.


Place the 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. Serve with fruit.
