You may have seen over on Instagram that June 2nd was National Donut Day! Although there is a food day for just about everything these days, I thought this was a fun one to play around with.
It was also a great way to use up extra dark chocolate we had from making these Frozen Monkey Tails. Either option has been an easy, healthier dessert alternative for our daughters to enjoy...and us adults too!
1 apple, washed (I used fuji)
1 ounce dark chocolate (we've been loving @eschocolate 72% chimpanzee bars!)
1 Tablespoon all-natural peanut butter (or @thesneakychef no-nut butter for #nutfreefamilies)
1 Tablespoon food-dye free sprinkles (the ones by @indiatree are our faves)
1. Slice apple crosswise in 1/4-1/2 inch slices.
2. Using an apple corer (or a small circle cookie cutter if you don't have one), remove the core from each slice. This may also be done at the beginning if using an actual corer.
3. Melt chocolate pieces in microwave, stirring every 15 seconds until smooth. Gently stir in peanut butter.
4. Drizzle chocolate-peanut butter onto apple ring or spread to cover completely. Immediately sprinkle with sprinkles.
