Mini-Chocolate Fondue Recipe
“What do you mean I can’t have chocolate? Screw that! I’m going to have a TON of chocolate.”
Or at least that’s how I get.
The FitWatch philosophy is to make changes you can live with for the rest of your life. Giving up chocolate is not something I want to do.
The trick, then, is chocolate in moderation — and to find a way to indulge a chocolate craving without going overboard. A piece of chocolate is nice — but boring. Chocolate fondue, on the other hand? S-W-O-O-N! The problem with chocolate fondue is it’s made with cream, takes time and made in large batches. (Are you really going to stick to one serving when you’ve got a pot full of melted chocolate sitting in front of you?)
But I have your back! I came up with a low calorie, single-serving, quick and easy mini-chocolate fondue. The fondue itself is only 60 calories! Add in fresh fruit and you can indulge your chocolate craving without having left-overs calling to you in the middle of the night.
Here’s the recipe:

Melting Chocolate Tips
- Test the amount of time in your microwave. Every microwave is different.
- If your microwave doesn’t have a power setting, microwave in short bursts of time.
- If your microwave doesn’t have a turntable, turn the bowl halfway through.
- Be careful if you overcook the chocolate; it’ll be very hot.
