  • 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)
