I doubled the recipe and got 79 pieces. The recipe says 60 small candies. I used a small cookie scoop abt. 3/4 tsp., they were using 1/2 tsp. The recipe also says these are a little sweet, a little tart, a little chewy. Another addition to my Christmas Candy Boxes.

How to Make Apricot Confections
- 1*Combine apricots and coconut in the bowl of a food processor. Add the sweetened condensed milk; pulse to form a dough that holds together.
*Note: I pulsed the apricots by their self a couple of times before adding the coconut, then pulsed again before adding the milk.
- 2Spread confectioners sugar on a baking sheet or a large plate; use a little to dust your hands.
- 3Scoop the dough in very small amounts, about 1/2 teaspoon, to form a loose ball. Roll each one in the sugar until well coated. Transfer to a wire rack to dry for at least 1 hour and up to overnight before serving or storing.
