One6 oz. package dried apricots (1 1/2 cups or 170 g)
3cups(288 g) unsweetened flaked coconut,separated
1cup(120 g) chopped walnutsor nut of your choice
2/3cup(208 g) sweetened condensed milk
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper (or wax paper). Set aside.
Place apricots, 2 cups shredded coconut, walnuts and sweetened condensed milk in a food processor. Pulse until combined, about 30 to 60 seconds.
Shape mixture into 1-inch balls and roll in remaining 1 cup shredded coconut. You can also roll in powdered sugar if preferred. Coconut apricot balls may be eaten right away or stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one week.
Freezing apricot balls: Apricot balls don't freeze very well. When defrosted, they lose their soft, dense texture. I suggest making the balls a day or two ahead of time if you plan on serving them at a party.
This recipe doubles easily. Roll in to balls right away as the mixture will dry out if left out uncovered.
