I have made these for Christmas for many years. The combination of flavors is incredible. I have dipped them in dark, milk, and white chocolate. They are even pretty good dipped in almond bark!

My kind of natural, no cook, wonderfully yummy treat! Not too sweet at all, just perfect!

These came together easily and looked great. Unfortunately, everyone in my household found them overwhelmingly sweet - however, if super sweet is your thing, these are definitely worth a try! In the future, I might try something similar, stuffing the apricot with a toasted almond instead of marzipan.
