18 balls


10 Min


No-Cook or Other


1 - 8 oz
dried apricots, finely chopped
1 c
sweetened flaked coconut
1/4 c
sweetened condensed milk
finely grated coconut or finely chopped pecans, for rolling

Directions Step-By-Step

In a food processor chop apricots and coconut until thoroughly combined.

Add the 1/4 cup sweetened condensed milk; process until combined.

Pour the mixture into a dish; refrigerate until firm (about 30-45 minutes).

Place wax paper on a baking sheet; set aside.

Place additional coconut or finely chopped pecans in a shallow bowl.

Shape apricot mixture into balls (about 1-inch in diameter).

Roll in coconut; place on wax paper.

Refrigerate until firm.

Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

I double the recipe and have substituted dried cranberries for the apricots, also very good.
