I blame my mother for my chocolate addiction, according to my baby book I had my first delectable bar of chocky at 5 months old…I never had a chance…Now that I have a 5 month old of my own (who will NOT be tasting chocolate for a looooong time!) I’ve been attempting to invent some healthier alternatives to scarfing down a 150g bar of chocolate in under a minute (or, in the dude’s case an ENTIRE jar of Nutella!) As our little gal likes to rock n’ roll all night most of my sweet creations are made in the wee morning hours before falling into bed….and so I present last night’s midnight feast:
Apples, vanilla sugar (regular sugar will do) & bitter baking chocolate
Cut your apples into wedges & arrange on a plate
Melt your chocolate. I used the chunk of chocolate in a bowl in hot water in a pot method. Add your sugar, I used 2 tablespoons of vanilla sugar, just enough to get rid of the bitterness of the baking chocolate.
Drizzle the melted chocolate over the apple wedges
Put the bowl with the rest of the melted chocolate in the middle of the apples for dipping, put your feet up & enjoy with your equally exhausted partner in parenting!
