This is a triple crown! It’s fast, easy and homemade. The dark chocolate makes these plump dried apricots the perfect holiday hostess gift.

You may use any kind of dried fruit and or nuts.

 

20 whole dried apricots

¾ cup good quality chocolate pieces

 

Gently melt chocolate over a simmering double boiler. Stir- the chocolate will hold its shape and you may not realize it is melted.  Turn off heat when chocolate is ¾ of the way melted, remove top from double boiler and  set on a towel on the counter and stir until smooth.

Dip apricots in chocolate and set aside to dry. Parchment paper works well for this.

 

Package them in a nice box or basket  !
