Of the two Christmas treats, these always disappear first. They are quick and easy to make, especially if you buy the apricots already chopped. I always roll them in icing sugar as there is already heaps of coconut inside them.
Every Christmas I make these Chocolate Rum Truffles and the next recipe Apricot Coconut Balls. When my children were little I used to make them, put them in jars and give them to their teachers as a Christmas gift. I’ve kept making them ever year since. The recipe came from a newspaper cutting that I pasted into my folder years ago. As we don’t read the same newspaper I was really surprised to find the same cutting in Mum’s collection. I’m now wondering how I ended up with it, but I’m glad I did.
