Super quick desserts. Apples and chocolate.

In winter, it is customary to bake pies with apples. For color, add blueberries and currants to them, for flavor – cinnamon, nuts, and honey. Only chocolate is modestly sad in the farthest corner. And why?
I’m not used to adding chocolate to apples yet. Although, perhaps one day an Apple slice in a dark glaze will become a top model on the pastry catwalk in Paris. Calvados, for example, has long been friends with chocolate. By the way, the French often bake Apple pies with chocolate sauce.
So, do you still have any apples? I think at least one Apple deserves chocolate. What ideas? First of all, dessert fondue recipes are like a winter tradition. Roll with apples can be marked with chocolate mirror glaze with gelatin powder. Or make dough for baking already with chocolate, and add sour applies to it. Do you like stuffing fruit? This time, make the apples happy not with honey, but with hot chocolate and nuts. The task for jewelers: first stuff small raw apples with something, and then dip them in white chocolate and sprinkle with almond petals. Americans, by the way, on the contrary like to dress big apples in chocolate, as well as caramel apples with chocolate and nuts.
