 MMMMM------------------CHOCOLATE LIQUEUR SAUCE-----------------------
       2 tb Butter or Margarine
       2 oz Unsweetened Chocolate square
       1 c  Sugar
     1/2 c  Water
       2 tb Apple Brandy -OR-
            - Creme de Cacao
  
   Preheat oven to 350. Wash & core apples, but DO NOT PEEL. Cut apple
   1/3-1/2 of the way from top to bottom in 6 or 8 sections, depending
   on size of apple. Place in shallow, ungreased baking pan. Mix sugar
   and cinnamon together in small saucepan; add water, lemon and orange
   slices, and bring to a boil. Boil 7 mins. or until syrup is
   thickened. Discard lemon and orange slices. Pour this syrup over the
   apples, and bake for 30 minutes or until fork tender. Baste apples
   frequently during baking with syrup from the pan. They should be
   nicely glazed when done. To serve warm, let apples stand 10-15
   minutes before continuing. Also good served cold. Place apple in
   glass dessert bowl, opening the apple sections so they spread (like
   flower petals) to fit the bowl. Cut sections deeper if needed to open
   it more easily. Fill center of apple with scoop of ice cream. Drizzle
   the chocolate liqueur sauce over all, and garnish with chopped
   walnuts.
   
   Serve immediately.
    CHOCOLATE LIQUEUR SAUCE: Melt butter and chocolate in saucepan over
   low heat. Add sugar and water. Cook until sauce is thickened a bit,
   stirring frequently. Add liqueur and remove from heat. Cool.
