(The Meades) Delicious, nutritious, and definitely quick and easy to
make for gifts or include on party cookie plates. Takes 20 minutes to
prepare for rolling. Toast nuts: Preheat oven to 350 F. Spread nuts in
shallow pan and bake 5-10 minutes. Pulse apricots and nuts in food
processor just until finely chopped. Place mixture in bowl; stir in
sugar, orange zest, and orange juice. Roll mixture into 1" balls and
arrange close together in shallow pan. Melt chocolate in glass
measuring cup in microwave on High for about 1 minute. Drizzle
chocolate over tops of candies; or spoon chocolate in plastic snadwich
bag, cut tiny hole in one corner, and pipe chocolate over candies.
Variation: Instead of chocolate, roll candies in granulated sugar.
Store in airtight container in refrigerator about 1 week. Per piece:
