Apricot Coconut No Bakes

It’s hot this summer. I am grateful that the weekend came and a little rain came with it. It made it nice, but muggy too. I’ve done a lot of grilling and no bake and ice cream.

I wanted a little different treat this time. Something that was refreshing and sweet. When the neighbor boys came around selling apricots for $1 a bag, I couldn’t resist the deal, or the chance to try something new. But really, it was about the deal.

I searched for recipes that I could use that would be different and not heat up the kitchen. It was hard to find one! And finally I came across this:

I couldn’t wait to try them. They don’t take long to make and you won’t be sorry. They are delicious and such a pretty color. These treats can even be frozen and taken out when you need a little extra sweet pick me up.

Apricot Coconut No Bakes

1 1/2 cup dried or 1 cup fresh apricots, cut into small pieces

2 cups unsweetened coconut

2/3 cup sweetened condensed milk (I used my vegan condensed milk version)

In a bowl, mix the apricots and coconut together. Slowly start to drizzle in the sweetened condensed milk, stopping to stir the mixture. Test mixture at intervals by forming into a ball. If mixture will form a soft ball, then there is enough sweetened condensed milk. If using fresh apricots or the vegan condensed milk, you will likely use less than the 2/3 cup the recipe calls for.

Form the mixture into one inch balls and place on waxed paper cookie sheet. Flash freeze for 30 minutes and then transfer the balls into a freezer safe container for bag. Label and freeze for up to one month.

When ready to serve, remove several minutes before serving and place on a plate to allow them to thaw.
