Creating the Chocolate Drizzle:
Place the dark chocolate chips and coconut oil in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave the bowl in short 15 to 20-second bursts on medium power (50%). Stir the chocolate gently with a dry spoon after each burst to ensure even melting.

Continue microwaving and stirring until the chocolate chips are almost completely melted. The residual heat in the bowl will help melt any remaining solid bits. Be careful not to overheat the chocolate.
