The “ABCD” Ring

Hello everyone!

It’s been quite a long time that I didn’t share with you some recipe… So let me introduce you the “ABCD Ring

What’s that?

I really wanted to create something that “bug” me : A simple snack with natural product. An apple, some dark chocolate, some nuts and mealworms, nothing else is necessary… Purity, simplicity : health and pleasure, that’s all, that’s life

I chose this name because every ingredient’s name in this recipe begin with the first 4 letters of the alphabet and also because “ABC” is the basis and, for me, edible insects are the “D”, the development, the evolution, the step forward.

Before saying that an apple ring with chocolate, mealworms and nuts is weird, please remember that someone mixed a croissant and a doughnut and everybody is saying that’s an amazing idea!


The ingredients

Preparation time : 30 min
Rest time : 2 hours in the fridge

You can dry your apple rings in a dehydrator or in the oven at low temperature.
Information : I personnaly dried my apple in a dehydrator for 7 hours at 130°F.

In a hot greased pan with a little bit of coconut oil, fry your mealworms at medium-high heat for 8 minutes (when you will hear the first popping, it will be ready!)
Information : The mealworms have first been thawed and then rinsed in cold water.

Crush the nuts.
