  1. Preheat oven to 400*F.
  2. Place coarsely chopped walnuts on baking sheet and place in hot oven. Bake for 8 minutes. Remove from oven.
  3. Melt both chocolate chips in a double boiler(over water-or microwave if you like but be careful not to burn). Stir frequently to melt and when smooth and velvety, add in apricot preserves. Mix thoroughly. Remove from heat.
  4. Quickly add in cinnamon, lemon and orange zest, stirring to mix.
  5. Spread out onto wax paper lined baking sheet. Sprinkle with toasted walnuts and chopped dried apricots. Press them down into the chocolate so they will stick.

This made for a great football snack. Made this as written with no changes. For the 4 of us, wish there could of been more. The flavors were great, loved the way the cinnamon stood out here. We enjoyed this, Made for Holiday Tag.

With 1 exception, I made this recipe as given ~ Instead of being coarsely chopped, toasting the walnuts first & then chopping them pretty fine! Loved the combo of apricot, chocolate & the zest! Definitely something I'll make again! [Made & reviewed in RSC #15 Contest]

I have never made a sweet like this before and I thought my DH would like this, I was right he loved the taste. The lemon and orange zest came through well, but it was the cinnamon that was the strongest and my DH loves cinnamon. I think mine was a bit thick I think it is meant to be a bit thinner but next time I will do better. Made for RSC#15
