Just another way to enjoy the taste of chocolate & apricots! Preparation time does not include the time it takes for the fudge to cool down to room temperature.

This recipe is very good! I choppped my apricots a bit too finely (didn't really notice them as much as I would have liked). Next time I will chop them in larger pieces so I can enjoy the flavor a bit more (but that was MY error). The chocolate fudge was nice and creamy too! Definitely love this recipe and will put it in my Christmas regulars! Thanks for such a great change over regular fudge!

It certainly takes a slightly evil mind to post something like this and I bow to your wisdom in sharing this. I used 12 oz milk chocolate chips in place of the sweet baking chocolate but otherwise followed directions. Thanks so very much, it will be made up as Holiday treats but I need to share this soon and get it out of my reach.

Though I do not have a candy thermometer, I used a meat thermometer an worked out well. Enjoyed these with my neighbors during the football game today, the chocolate combo and apricots were a nice combo. We were commenting about that commercial.."Can't stop eating those_____". Very addicting moist, and full of chocolate.Thanks for the recipe. Have to save this one.
ade for PRMR tag.
