Apricot + Coconut Balls

Party Food Ideas, Recipes

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, a chef I am not.

So when I find a recipe that

a) is easy
b) I already have the ingredients for
c) gets eaten

I am sold.

  • 2 cups of dried apricots
  • 2 cups of desiccated coconut
  • 1 tin condensed milk

Whack it all in the food processor. I used my Magimix because it’s an absolute GEM for this kind of thing. Blend it all together until you’re left with a lump of apricot yumminess.
Roll it into small balls, cover in more coconut and pop in the fridge for a few hours.

YUM YUM YUM! (I’m eating one as I type)

  • If you're like me, then you're probably fairly infatuated with coconut. And brownies. Some favourite easy snacks of ours involve sliced banana covered in coconut, and mixed dried fruit blended with a dash of milk and coconut oil, then rolled and covered in coconut. Mmmm. So yummy. BUT. If you want to actually make something that takes a few moments longer, requires a few more ingredients and is a WHOLE lot tastier and presentable then you should give these brownies from The Colourful Housewife a go. They're great for party food, lunch box treats or holiday baking fun. It's probably important to note that you will be left with half a packet of choc bits that are not required ing the recipe. Be subtle. Be quick. Be sneaky. Hide these beautiful drops of chocolicious joy for your taste bud satisfaction when no one's looking. Mwhahaha! You're welcome.
