For maximum health benefits use a good dark chocolate with cocoa content of 65 percent or higher. "Flavanoids in cocoa beans have antioxidant effects that reduce cell damage implicated in heart disease. Flavanoids — which are more prevalent in dark chocolate than in milk chocolate or white chocolate — also help lower blood pressure and improve vascular function. In addition, some research has linked chocolate consumption to reduced risks of diabetes, stroke and heart attack." (mayoclinic.com)
Kiwifruit is a rich source of vitamin C, vitamin K, vitamin E, fiber and once again flavonoids. (Fruitsandveggiesmorematters.com)

Stirring constantly until the chocolate is melted. Turn off heat.
