  1. Delicious, easy, elegant! I found there to be too much white chocolate, so next time I'll decrease the amount to around 5 oz. I also lightly toasted the coconut to boost the flavor. I added some to the coating, and next time I'll increase the coconut in the coating for added texture. This makes a very small batch, but it's great for adding to a candy tray. I found desiccated coconut at Whole Foods. Thank you so much!
  2. You are so right ~ These are deliciously sweet & they're also disgustingly, addictingly wonderful, especially for those of us with a sweet tooth & a chocolate addiction!!! Loved the combo of apricot & coconut flavors! Unfortunately they're also way too much fun to make! Thanks for posting the recipe! [Made & reviewed for one of my adopted chefs in this Spring's PAC]


I am a 15 year old high school student from Brisbane, Australia. I developed my passion for cooking for others about two years ago and since then have progressed from simply following instructions on the side of a box to cooking fancy meals my whole family can enjoy. I tend to put my own twists on any recipe to create something that is orginal and love nothing more than seeing the food i cook being enjoyed by others. I love music, sport, do hip-hop dancing and take any chance i can to go to the beach. <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/adoptedspring08.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket">
