Chocolate Covered Apricots with Pistachios

Recipes, Snacks

Easy to make, dark chocolate treat decadent enough to give as a gift, simple enough for a weeknight treat.

Ingredients

  • 1⁄2 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1⁄2 tsp raw coconut oil
  • 4 Tbsp raw or dry roasted pistachios, chopped fine
  • 24 large dried apricots

Melting Chocolate

Fill a saucepan with 1 inch water. Put finely chopped chocolate or chocolate chips in a heatproof bowl that will fit over pan without the bottom of the bowl touching the water. Remove the bowl. Bring water to a boil, set bowl over pan. Use a heatproof spatula or wooden spoon to stir the chocolate frequently and encourage even melting. Once the chocolate is melted, remove from heat, stir well and use immediately.

Instructions

  1. Line a baking sheet with waxed or parchment paper.
  2. Chop pistachios and place in small bowl.
  3. Using a double boiler, melt chocolate and coconut oil slowly over medium-low heat, stirring constantly.
  4. Remove from heat. Holding apricots from one end, dip them 1 at a time into melted chocolate, turning to coat about 3/4 of the apricot. Let excess drip off bottom and back into bowl.
  5. Hold apricot over bowl of pistachios and sprinkle the nuts over the chocolate.
  6. Place apricot NUT SIDE DOWN on lined baking sheet and repeat with remaining apricots.
  7. Chill until chocolate is set, about 1 hour.
  8. Store in an airtight container between sheets of waxed paper in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.

Notes

  • For diary free or vegan bark, check ingredient statement on dark chocolate chips to make sure they contain no milk, milk powder or milk fat.
