How To Make Dessert Tacos

Just like art class, paint your chocolate over the inside and outside of your shells. The chocolate hardens pretty quick. Let them sit while you prepare the apple filling.


Homemade Whipped Cream

How To Make Apple Pie Filling

Peel and chop 4 large apples. I used Gala, but just about any variety will work great. Pour your apple chunks into a hot skillet with melted butter.
