Easy to make rich and decadent mocha fondue or dip using chocolate chips. You can use instant coffee dissolved in hot water for the brewed coffee if you like. Fresh fruit and chunks of cake make great dippers. Prepare the apple and banana chunks just before serving, and dip them in lemon juice to prevent browning.

- 1⁄8 teaspoon salt
