Cook time: 5 minutes
Yield: 6 servings

  • 1/2 cup light cream
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

For dipping:

* 2 ripe bananas, sliced thinly, 1 cup mini-marshmallows and 1 pint raspberries

1. Sprinkle banana slices with lemon juice to keep them from turning brown.

2. Spear a couple of marshmallows and a banana slice on a small fork; repeat with other forks. Set aside on a platter. Spear raspberries on other forks and add to the platter.

3. Heat a medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Add the cream and the chocolate chips and reduce heat to low. Stir until chocolate melts and sauce is smooth, about 3 minutes.

4. Transfer the sauce to a bowl and serve with the prepared fruit and marshmallows.
