This dessert is a clever twist on profiteroles that also happens to be gluten-free. Ripert replaces the usual pastry with fresh, plump apricots, serving them with vanilla ice cream and a warm, spiced chocolate sauce.  Slideshow: Winter Fruit Dessert Recipes

How to Make It

Step 1    prepare the apricots

In a large skillet, combine the honey and vanilla seeds and cook over moderate heat, stirring, for 2 minutes. Add the apricot halves cut side down and cook, moving them frequently in the skillet, until they start 
to brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer the apricots to a plate.

Step 2    make the chocolate sauce

Put the chocolate in a medium heatproof bowl. In a medium saucepan, combine the cream, honey and spices and 
bring to a boil. Pour the cream over the chocolate and whisk until smooth.

Step 3    

Set 1 apricot half cut side up in each bowl and top with a scoop of ice cream. Set another apricot half on top, cut side down, and drizzle with the warm chocolate sauce. Serve right away.
