  • 3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • Assorted fresh fruit


  1. In a small heavy saucepan, combine chocolate chips and cream. Using a whisk, heat and stir over medium-low heat until smooth, 4-5 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in cinnamon and cayenne. Cool slightly. Serve with fruit.
Editor's Note: Dip will become firmer as it cools. If desired, warm gently in the microwave to soften.
