Home Economics Apricot Coconut Balls

Barbara Eaton


This recipe goes back to the 1950s and junior high home economics class. Remember when when it was mandatory that girls took "cooking" and "sewing" for at least 1 semester each? If you do, you are likely to remember these and still love them. There's no cooking so these are great for the kids, or in my case the grandkids, to help you make.
