Dark Chocolate-Dipped Apricots
At one point I had three different boxes in my hand. I also love the fact that they come in boxes that you have to open to get to the fun wrapper inside. I peel that crinkling wrapping back with all the care of Charlie Bucket, I tell you.
I wound up putting them all back. I was like "this is crazy". Or maybe something more ghetto like "yo, bleep this bleep. I'm out." Oh yeah. I'm as ghetto as they come. I could not decide. And I wasn't going to drop a minimum of $7.50 on chocolate bars.
This has been my idea of dessert and sweets lately. I've been steering clear of cakes and brownies and cookies and pies. And indulging in scrumdiddlyumptious
Along the same lines of scrummy chocolate studded with goodies are goodies bathed in scrummy chocolate. Like these plump little nuggets of sunshine. They go swimming in a pool of lightly sweet dark chocolate. Then they take a roll in salty shards of nuttiness. As far as desserts go, I consider them virtuous.
What about you? Virtuous or not really...
- ½ c. dark or bittersweet chocolate chips (or equivalent chopped chocolate)
- 36 dried apricots
- ~¼ c. finely chopped SALTED pistachios
