We love apples and I am always looking for new ways to use them in recipes. Apple fritters are a favorite with my family. I thought since I am such a chocoholic, I would try making chocolate apple fritters. We thought they were great sprinkled with powdered sugar and topped with chocolate sauce. I tried them with caramel sauce and ice cream, too. There are so many ways you could serve these chocolate fritters!1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour 1/4 cup brown sugar 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg 1 tablespoon cocoa 3/4 cup milk 2 eggs 2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted 2 teaspoons vanilla flavoring 3 small apples, peeled and chopped 1/2 cup chocolate chips 1/2 cup walnut pieces or nuts of your choice Oil for frying Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, cocoa and nutmeg in a bowl with a spoon or wire whisk. In another bowl mix milk, eggs, vanilla, butter and beat with whisk. Combine the two bowls and mix well. Fold apples, chocolate chips and nuts into the batter. Pour enough oil into your skillet to make 1/4 inch. Heat oil and drop batter by spoonful into oil. (I use an ice cream scoop for the batter). Cook until done on one side, flip and continue frying until both sides are done. Drain on paper towels. Makes about 1 1/2 dozen fritters. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and add your favorite toppings.
