This recipe arrived in my inbox - geez how many recipe sites do I belong too?! - anyway it had dried apricots in it! That immediately sparked my interest and then it mentioned Chocolate - ummmm that was it! I printed it out and I was on a mission. :)
What else was I meant to do - dried apricots (love) + chocolate (love) a match made in heaven and I was NOT disappointed at the end result. Neither were the rest of the family and friends that helped me eat them!

Wow Hubby is going to love these balls of bliss, thanks for sharing 8)
Enjoy Merryn! :)
I had some leftover condensed milk (how??) so made these for hubby - he likes white chocolate. I didn't have any oranges on hand so I used 2 drops of DoTerra Wild Orange oil. yum.
Cathy I would like to know how you had left over as well! Totally unheard of in this house!

I love this recipe. I make it with cream cheese instead of condensed milk. I've also made it with dried cherries, and it tastes amazing :-) xxx
Oh that sounds delicious as well Janet - on the must try list :D
These gorgeous balls were just perfect to add to Christmas gift packs. I also made some with dried cranberries in place of the apricots and they were delicious. Great work Leonie :-)
Thanks Amanda, oh dried cranberries - must try that!
Yum! These are great! Mine had extra orange as I decided to peel a whole orange in instead of stopping at one teaspoon. Definitely follow the tip about chilling before rolling - made it much easier.
Thank you Darra. :)

These are amazeballs. And so quick and easy to make. I have also made them with cream cheese instead of condensed milk, as I wanted to use the leftover half a packet I had from making the caramel crown balls. I was told they were the best ever. Thanks Leonie for another favourite recipe :-)
Thanks Janet. Cream cheese does work well too! :)
