Bring a saucepan with about an inch or two of water to a simmer.
In a medium bowl add the chocolate and milk. Place bowl over simmering water (water should not touch the bottom of the bowl) to create a double boiler. Stir occasionally until the chocolate has melted and is smooth. Carefully remove the bowl from the pan and stir in cinnamon, vanilla and coconut oil.
Pour chocolate into a heat-safe bowl and serve with fresh fruit (strawberries, bananas, blueberries, pineapple and kiwi) or baked goods like cubed pieces of pound cake or small cookies.
The chocolate fondue can be refrigerated, once cooled, and then reheated again by following the instructions above for a double boiler method.
