Three ingredients? Dried apricots, coconut and condensed milk. This recipe for Apricot and Coconut Balls really is that simple.

There are a few variations for apricot balls out there, some recipes call for additional things like crushed biscuits or white chocolate but I like this one just the way it is. These bite sized treats are great to make any time of year for a sweet treat and make for a great Christmas recipe.

To make these chewy sweet apricot bites, you can either chop the apricots into small pieces or as we did use the food processor. Once you have your mixture, all you need to do is roll the mixture into small balls, then roll through the extra coconut. I encourage you to wet your hands to avoid the mixture sticking as much – but unfortunately if it unavoidable. There will be a mess at the end.

This recipe is simple, yummy and easy to get your kids involved!

      Hi Elly, We used dry desiccated coconut in this recipe but I’m sure fresh coconut would also be great! 🙂
