Chocolate-Honey Covered Apples

Wash apples and dry well. Granny Smith apples are the best. Put a stick or twig through the stem of the apple. After step 1 above, put apple in the chocolate and spoon over the chocolate sauce until completely covered. Remove to wax paper-lined baking sheet. Sprinkle with chopped nuts, coconut, or sprinkles. Place in fridge to harden.

Chocolate-Honey Truffles

Once chocolate is cool, allow to soften a bit at room temperature. Scoop out small balls of chocolate and roll them in cocoa powder. Store, covered in refrigerator for up to 1 week, or freeze for 2 months.

For extra crunch: roll truffles in chopped nuts.
