Notes and Suggestions
If you're following a gluten-free diet, make sure the chips you use in this recipe are "gluten free." You can top with fresh berries and whipped cream (or frozen yogurt or vanilla lowfat ice cream). If you don't have a food processor, use a blender. To melt the chocolate chips, place them in a medium saucepan over low heat and stir until melted, 1 to 2 minutes.
