How To Make coconut / apricot balls

  • 1
    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.
