YUM!! I omitted the brandy but otherwise made as directed, the pecans were a nice addition. As with making any kinda "balls" it's best to have moist hands when rolling to prevent anything sticking to your palms. These were enjoyed by the whole family and will be stored in the freezer to add to the kids lunchboxes for a treat.

these are delicious! i have been making them for years but never with the pecans, always very popular :-) i use organic dried apricots and always serve from the freezer. to make them chocolate i leave out brandy, apricots and pecans and add 3 T of cocoa. really handy to have some in the freezer !

I made these for dessert after the potato skins (yet another wonderful recipe you have) and the kids loved them. I had only given them half and took the rest over to my next door neighbour for afternoon tea. she loved them and asked for the recipe.. so consider this 2 reviews they were great thanks:)
