How to Make Coconut / Apricot Balls

Step-by-Step

  • 1In 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.
