I do my best to keep a bowl of fresh fruit on the edge of the kitchen counter all year as a reminder to myself and to my family to eat more fresh fruit. It's a great reminder to all of us that we should choose fruit over a sugary treat when looking for a snack. Fortunately, I really like fruit and I eat a lot of it. Right now our fruit basket is filled with apples from our trip to the apple orchard.
As much as I love fresh apples, there are times when I just crave something sweeter than an apple. (Bring on the chocolate.) Adding a little dark chocolate to an apple changes it from a simple snack into a decadent dessert. My freshly picked apples just went from appealing to irresistible.
These chocolate dipped apple slices are super easy to make.
I put my apples in the refrigerator so the chocolate would harden quicker so that we I could eat them sooner. I served them for dessert after dinner and they were a big hit.
I had a little bit of melted chocolate leftover and a few leftover strawberries in the refrigerator so I did what anyone in my position would do - I made chocolate covered strawberries. Can you blame me?
I'm thinking that I'm going to have to make these again really soon because they were really good. I think I made my point perfectly clear - Chocolate makes everything better.
