    threeovens's Note:

    This supposed to be a healthy alternative to traditional candy. This recipe uses dried apricots which are high in fiber. Almonds have many health benefits and the dark chocolate has antioxidants. So this is not candy at all - it's healthfood! Recipe adapted from Ellie Krieger.
