My husband is allergic to coconut in any form. What can I use instead of coconut oil?

Great question – the purpose of the coconut oil is to help the chocolate chips melt smoothly so you can definitely leave it out. Melt the chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl without the coconut oil for 30 seconds. Stir the chocolate chips then microwave for another 30 seconds or until smooth. Make sure to keep an eye on it to prevent burning.
