Prepare a double boiler: Simmer a few inches of water in a saucepan and place a heatproof bowl over the pan. Make sure the bowl is not touching the water.
Reserve about a tablespoon of coconut cream (the thick stuff at the top of the can of coconut milk when you open it) and set aside. Pour the rest of the can into the bowl and let it melt, stirring, until smooth.
Add the chocolate chips and vanilla to the bowl and let melt, stirring occasionally, until smooth and creamy. Pour the chocolate into a fondue pot. Put the reserved coconut cream in a clean heatproof bowl and melt over the simmering water (it will not take long for the cream to melt and become smooth).
Drizzle the coconut cream on top of the chocolate fondue. Using a toothpick, swirl the coconut cream into the chocolate, creating a pretty design. Serve with bamboo skewers or fondue picks. Dip the fruit in the chocolate and enjoy!
