The looked pretty on a holiday goodies platter.
Making these the same way except I never added the shortening. Next time I'll try the shortening to see the difference, thanks! update: made it with the shortening for chocolate covered strawberries- it made more liquid and worked great. Thanks!
This is such a wonderful recipe to take anywhere. Nutritious and delicious. .. (not to mention- EASY).
These are amazing!!!
Easy to make and easy to eat too! I love dried apricots and this was the icing on the cake! I didn't have shortening so used margarine, so they didn't turn out nice and glossy the way they are supposed to. I highly recommend using the shortening!Thanks Kathy!
I must have forgotten to rate this recipe... I took it to friends where we having Christmas lunch. They were really good, not too sweet and just a nice change from all the heavy Christmas puddings. So easy to make and would be great on a cheese platter.
I used apricots from Nutonline, which has the best dried fruit in the world. Also comes in a special pouch that allows you to add a little moisture if you need to. I have used lots of dried fruit before,but the ones from Nutsonline are truly superior. Their nuts and seeds are also excellent.
I have to try this. It's like something I've tried in the past. Can I get the link to the log you spoke of for the yummy photos?
Fabulous! And so easy. They looked beautiful and tasted so good that I couldn't wait for them to set before sampling. I bought Sunshine dried apricots which were plump, moist and sweet. At the same time, I purchased a bag of Archer Farms dried apricots which were tough and dry. What a difference!
My Dad loves these. In fact everbody does in my family, but Dad gets a tin of these and a bunch of fudge almost every year as a present. He really likes good food and has always been spoiled by Mom and Grandma (both GREAT cooks). When I make these my husband has been known to get the experimental bug and start trying other dried fruit....as he puts it chocolate makes evrything taste good. Smaller fruits don't look as pretty, but they do taste good.
