Time: 45 minutes (15 minutes prep)

Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup bittersweet chocolate chips

  • 36 dried apricots

  • 2 tablespoons chopped pistachios

Directions
  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment or wax paper.

  2. Place chocolate chips in a small glass bowl. Microwave on Medium for 1 minute. Stir, then continue microwaving in 20-second intervals until melted, stirring after each interval. (Alternatively, melt in the top of a double boiler over hot, but not boiling, water.)

  3. Dip half of each apricot into the melted chocolate. Let the excess drip back into the bowl. Place the dipped fruit on the prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle pistachios over the chocolate. Refrigerate until the chocolate is set, about 30 minutes.

with a microwave you don't need to make 36. make one, any nut you like, and use fresh apricots also when you can. This is actually great for almost any fruit. Especially strawberry. I use 70% + dark chocolate.
