I have a killer sweet tooth. I need something sweet after dinner every night, usually of the chocolate variety. In an attempt to avoid because the size of an elephant, I try to make this nightly indulgence a small treat. Enter my tried-and-true dark chocolate and dried apricots.
Just a square of chocolate and 2 or 3 apricots is all I need. I nibble each, mixing them together for the perfect combination. I get go for the dark chocolate they have by the cash registers at Trader Joe’s (3 bars in a pack) and nearly any dried apricot will do. The more plump, the better.
One day, if I get fancy, I might go through the effort of dipping the apricot in chocolate.
But for now, it’s all crinkled wrappers and little nibbles.
