Main Ingredients

1/2 cup dark chocolate chips, chunks, or bars broken into pieces (use 70% cacao or higher)

1 teaspoon coconut oil

24 dried apricots (or figs, pineapple rings, mango slices, your favorite dried fruit)

garnishes such as chopped hazelnuts, roasted pistachios, shredded coconut, lemon zest, sea salt


1Melt dark chocolate and coconut oil for 30 second increments in the microwave until the chocolate is smooth and glossy. Stir between heatings. This should take about 3-4 rounds of microwaving.

2Dip apricots into melted dark chocolate, then dunk chocolate-coated portion into whatever topping you desire. Here are three of my favorite variations:

3-lemon zest and chopped roasted hazelnuts

4-salted pistachios

5-shredded and chopped coconut chips

6Arrange on a parchment-lined baking dish or sheet. Chill until ready to devour. These will last 2 weeks in an airtight container refrigerated but can be frozen for up to 3 months.
