Skillet Apple Dumplings

4 squares premium dark (or milk) chocolate (1 1/2 oz)
1 large Granny Smith apple
1 stick unsalted butter (4 oz)
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 teaspoon apple pie spice
1 (8-oz) can reduced-fat crescent dough
3/4 cup lemon lime soda

Cut chocolate into 8 even pieces. Peel apple; cut into 8 wedges.

1. Place butter, sugar, vanilla, and apple pie spice in microwave-safe bowl; microwave on HIGH 1-1 1/2 minutes or until butter melts. Stir until blended.
2. Unroll dough on work surface; separate at perforations. Starting at widest end of each roll, place 1 each apple wedge and chocolate square. Roll dough around filling.
3. Preheat large nonstick sauté pan on medium-low 1-2 minutes. Place sugar mixture in pan; place dumplings in pan about 1/2-inch apart. Pour soda over dumplings and cover; simmer 10 minutes.
4. Turn each dumpling over gently; cook 7-8 more minutes, uncovered, or until apples are tender when pierced with a fork. Let stand 5 minutes to cool (sauce will thicken). Serve.
