Lazy Sunday Afternoon - Cinnamon Honey Baked Apricots

Sometime I crave for desserts which are light, sweet, warm and it should hardly take any efforts to make, after all it's Sunday afternoon. I have mini dark chocolate store (7 to 8 flavors) but they don't help at times. I went and stood staring at them for few minutes, walked to my refrigerator saw few apricots shrinking. Right then active grey matter reminded me of a quick recipe which Vinoo said to me, here it is. I simply love it, thanks Vinoo for coming up with wonderful recipe. Have it warm, for those who don't like white chocolate you can very well have with vanilla ice cream or vanilla sauce. Happy working week ahead. Hugs! 











Ingredients
5 Fresh for frozen apricots (I used fresh)
Few or desired amount of fresh or frozen blueberries (I used frozen) say I added 5 to 6 berries in each ramekins
5 tbsp of honey
1 - 1 1/2 tsp of cinnamon powder ( I used 1 1/2)
5 piece of white chocolate (or choose much ever you want :))

Method
Deseed the apricots, make sure that you don't cut them through out. Place each apricots in separate ramekins. Mix honey and cinnamon powder. Pour one tbsp of honey cinnamon mixture into the apricots.  Tug in few blue berries into the apricots. Bake the apricots in a preheated oven at 170 degree for 8 -10 minutes. The fruit and berries should become soft and juicy. Place chocolate pieces in each ramekins and bake them again for 2 to 4 mins till the chocolate just starts to melt. 
Note: the baking time may vary according the fruit and the chocolate variety you use. May be it might take few mins less or more kindly check according!
