Spicy Chocolate'N Fruit Biscuit

When I think of making appetizers for any party or gathering, I think of something that I can make with very little effort, and which won't need much of my attention. Thus I can focus more on making the other courses to serve for the occasion. So typically for appetizers, I try not to make something from scratch, but would prefer to use some off the shelf ingredient that would reduce my cooking time and effort. This is one such recipe that meets all these criteria as I have used the Pillsbury® Grands!® refrigerated biscuits, which are available at the refrigerated section of any supermarket. I have used apple and bananas for this recipe, primarily because these are the two fruits that are always there at our house. But you can substitute them for any of the seasonal fruits, as long as they are firm and not watery, or you may use only one of them.
Ingredients:
Pillsbury® Grands!® refrigerated biscuits (any variety)-1 can (16.3 oz)
Semi-sweet Chocolate chips-1/2 cup or to taste
Chilli powder-1/2 tsp
Banana- 1
Apple- 1
Salt - 1/8 tsp
Milk -2 tbs
Method:
Peel the apple and banana and cut it into little pieces. Mix in the salt, chilli powder and the chocolate chips. Roll out each biscuit into 6" rounds; fill it with the fruit mix. Fold dough over the filling and seal it well. Apply a thin glaze of milk over each biscuit. Bake this in a pre-heated oven at 375 degrees F for 12-14 minutes or till the biscuits turn golden.
