These delicious apricot snacks have become a wonderful Christmas tradition for my children and grandchildren alike. We’ll make up a huge batch at the start of every visit, then slowly work through them over the days to follow.

Ingredients

  • 1 packet plain sweet biscuit (milk arrowroots are ideal)
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  • 20 dried apricots – approximately
  • 1 cup desiccated coconut

Method

  1. Place the biscuits in a plastic bag and use a rolling pin to roll them out until they are fine crumbs and pour into a mixing bowl.
  2. Using a pair of kitchen scissors, cut the dried apricots into small pieces and add to the mixing bowl.
  3. Pour the condensed milk and 3/4 cups of the coconut into the mixing bow.
  4. Mix well until the mixture is thick and sticking together.
  5. Take a spoonful of the mixture onto a board covered with the remaining coconut and roll into a small ball.
  6. Place into a container lined with baking paper and continue until the mixture is all used.
  7. Refrigerate for 30-60 minutes and enjoy!
