I have an urge to make something appley and I have some apples begging to be used and thought this might be a good option. Yes, there isn't any chocolate and that is an odd thing for me, but this looked moist and yummy and full of Autumn goodness! Found it at The Sisters Cafe: the mecca of super great recipes!

Mine is really my mom's apple pie. Homemade crust and all. Ice cream all melty. Savory, yummy, and extremely healthy ;)
