For those who’ve been asking (or for those who prefer a culinary experiment that doesn’t involve turning on an oven), I’d like to share the no-bake White Chocolate Apricot Balls that are also featured in the story. Enjoy!
White Chocolate Apricot Balls
- 2/3 cup powdered sugar
- 1 cup blanched almonds
- 2 cups dried apricots
- 2 tablespoons rum
- Zest of 1 medium orange
- 1.5 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 4 ounces of white chocolate (look in the baking section, or just a regular old bar of white chocolate will do. You can even try white chocolate chips if you can't find anything else)
Here comes the fun part...
Spray your hands with nonstick cooking spray. Then grab a handful of the goo in the food processor and make a ball. You should have enough to form 20-24 balls, so get rolling.
Spread them out on a baking sheet, but don't bake them. Chill them in the fridge for a couple hours (though if you're impatient like me, you can start gobbling them up right away – they just won't be firm at that point, and isn't it always best to wait 'til something's satisfactorily firm?)
So there you go – another recipe from Getting Dumped. Those of you who read the first episode may be interested to know episode #2 is right around the corner. Those who haven't read it yet can find it here on Kindle.
Happy eating! (And reading).
