Somehow I ended up with several bags of dried apricots. I bought them once for this Mostarda recipe, then I bought them again for one of my favorite chicken recipes in the Power Foods Cookbook. Then I bought them again for some other reason that I don’t remember. I tend to do that-buy food again because I forgot that I already bought it.
So what did I do? I dunked them in dark chocolate. Sounds like a good solution right?
These Dark Chocolate Covered Apricots are so easy to put together. All you need is dried apricots and chocolate. I made a big batch, put them into a tin with wax paper between the layers, and brought them into work. They were a huge hit!
I’m going to keep these in mind for homemade real food holiday treats when the holidays come around!
I found that I used less than 1 bag of chocolate chips for 1 pound of apricots.
- dried apricots
- dark chocolate chips
- sliced almonds
- unsweetened shredded coconut
- chopped pistachios
- sea salt
- Melt the chocolate in a double boiler or microwave
- Dip the apricots half way in the chocolate, and place on wax paper to cool
- While the chocolate is still wet, sprinkle with optional ingredients
