One of the great things about blogging are the people you meet. Some are fans who share your love of food. There are those that try your recipes and come back and let you know how it turned out. And then there are other bloggers. I’ve been fortunate to meet so many wonderful, supportive people. One of my favorite bloggy friends is Roxana of Roxana’s Home Baking. She shares my love of all things sweet but especially Chocolate. Roxana had a brilliant idea to do a chocolate challenge each month. I was thrilled when she asked me to participate.
This is an open challenge so if you’d like to get involved, Just pop over to the party page and let Roxana know. Also participating are Patty’s Food, Tutti Dolci, Bakeaholic Mama, Lemons and Anchovies, That Skinny Chick Can Bake and Dinners, Dishes and Desserts. We’d love to have you as part of the group next month.
Each month the party will have a different theme but always including chocolate. Since fall is in the air, Apples was a perfect choice for September. Apples are probably my favorite fruit. I know it was the only fruit I would eat as a child.
I didn’t have much time to prepare so I rack my brain and hubby’s, trying to decide what to come up with. Things like an Apple Crumb Pie with chocolate melted and drizzled were brought up (and now I’ll have to make that for the hubby soon.) I wanted something that I could make in smaller proportions. It’s been a long time since I made crepes and the last time didn’t turn out so well. These Crepes with Caramelized Apples and Chocolate Sauce were the perfect opportunity to give it another go. I tried these with and without the chocolate sauce. I may be a bit biased when it comes to chocolate, but the chocolate sauce really adds to these crepes. And of course, it makes the plate look pretty.
You can make your apples and batter ahead of time and then it just takes a few minutes to cook up the crepes when you are ready to serve.
