APRICOT BITES (adapted from Tiny Happy, makes about 20 to 25)
250g dried apricots
60g golden caster sugar
zest of 1 lemon
juice of 1/2 lemon
80g desiccated coconut, more for coating
Put apricots, sugar, lemon zest and juice into a food processor. Process until the mix starts to form a paste. You may have to pulse to achieve this and scrape any reluctant bits of the sides with a spatula during the process. Add the coconut and process until paste shapes into a loose ball.
Sprinkle some of the extra coconut into a shallow dish. Use your hands to roll the apricot paste into small , bite-sized balls, then roll them around in the coconut until covered. Place in the fridge for at least an hour to firm up.
The apricot bites will keep for a couple of weeks in an airtight container. Keep them in the fridge in very warm weather.
