Happy Mother’s Day to all of my friends in the UK! Show mom your love by making her this delicious fondue that is elegant but so simple to make! To top it off, it’s a healthier option because we use coconut milk instead of heavy cream, and organic dark chocolate, which has health benefits. 😀

Dark Chocolate Coconut Fondue
This is creamy, chocolate-y fondue is a healthier option because it uses coconut milk instead of heavy cream, and organic dark chocolate. It's elegant but so easy to make! I hope you enjoy it.

Ingredients
  1. 1 can coconut milk (not coconut drink)
  2. 2 tsp vanilla extract
  3. 2 cups high quality dark chocolate chips
  4. Favorite dipping fruits, such as bananas, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, and grapes
Instructions
  1. Prepare a double boiler by simmering a few inches of water in a sauce pan, and placing a bowl over the pan. Make sure the bowl is not touching the simmering water.
  2. While the water is simmering, wash and cut your fruits so they are bite-sized. Arrange them on a plate.
  3. Reserve about a tablespoon of the coconut cream (the thick stuff at the top of the can when you open it) and set aside.
  4. Pour the remaining can of coconut milk into the double boiler and let it melt, mixing until the cream and water are combined.
  5. Add the vanilla and chocolate chips. Stir and let the chocolate melt until smooth and creamy.
  6. Melt the reserved coconut cream. You can do this in another (smaller) double boiler, or replace the bowl with the chocolate with a new bowl. It will not take very long for the cream to melt and become smooth.
  7. Pour the chocolate into a fondue pot. Drizzle the coconut cream on top of the chocolate. Taking a toothpick, swirl the coconut cream in the chocolate, creating a pretty design.
  8. Serve with fondue picks or bamboo skewers. Dip the fruit into the chocolate, and enjoy!

    Hi Amber, thanks for the reply!!!! Yes, I did audition, well I am in the process. I am sending them a video, but first I have to put it on youtube because of complications. I have the information for the sign up sheet thing, though I just need to find a picture of my mom. Is your casting video that you can watch on Food Network a video that you put in your audition form or are the casting videos made after you have been chosen??? Thanks so much for your help!!!! One more question, what did your parents write for the question…”What makes your child one of the most talented kid chefs in the country.” Anyways, thanks again for your help!!!! From Mia

      HI Mia! The casting video you see on food network was part of our auditions (so before we were chosen) and I am sorry, but I have no idea what my parents put for that question! 🙁 Good luck! 🙂
