I've been making apricot balls for years at the holidays, this is the first time I've used the food processor - how easy!! Will use this method for apricot balls again. They keep well in the fridge. Rolled mine in the coconut, probably should have chopped in finely first as it didn't stick as much as I would have liked it to.

I couldn't believe how easy this was! Hubby LOVES them! We will serve them at our party tonight (which is a "balls" theme lol). :) Thanks for this great, easy recipe!

These are excellent! I made them several times for holiday, low cal snacks...very popular. I used grated coconut instead of flaked, and rolled some in finely grated coconut..good results. I also substituted dried cranberries for apricots...also great.

This is very close to a summer confection made by "FANNIE FARMER" but instead of rolling in something, they were dipped in white chocolate.

Really good and very very easy to make and very very addictive! I found though that this recipe made only 13 large apricot balls (about a rum ball size). May need to up the quantities if you are needing larger amounts. Excellent recipe though!

Amazing is right! Just made these for Christmas trays. They are so easy and taste so GOOD!!! I had a lot of cashews to use up so chopped and toasted some. Rolled half in cashews, the rest in coconut. This will be a regular holidy treat as well as during the rest of the year. You did it again, Kitten....another 10 star recipe. Thanks!!!

I had to try this because I love apricots in any form & it was wonderful...chewy, sweet, tangy all rolled up into one little ball. Next batch I make I think I will hide in the back of the fridge so the kids can't find it lol.
