Dark Chocolate and Apple Packets

Dark Chocolate and Apple Packets
Makes 8

2 small apples or 1 large, sliced between 1/8th to 1/4-inch slices (if pieces are large, cut to size so they are slightly smaller than a wonton square.)
2 tablespoons butter, melted
3 to 3.5 ounces dark chocolate, cut into 8 pieces
16 wonton wrappers*
confectioner's sugar (powdered sugar), to serve

Preheat oven to 350* (F)

Lightly grease a shallow baking pan.

Arrange 8 wonton wrappers, evenly spaced, on the greased pan.

Place a slice of apple and a piece of chocolate in the center of a wonton wrapper. With a pastry brush, or your finger, dampen the edges of the wonton wrapper with water, top with another wonton wrapper and press the edges to seal.
Continue the same process with the remaining wrappers and filling.

Brush the tops with butter and bake for 8-10 minutes or until golden.

Allow to cool slightly, dust with powdered sugar and serve. Best served warm.
But I don't toss them out if they cool down. :)

*usually available in the refrigerated produce area of most grocery stores.
