These sweet little yummies are easy to make. They can be given as gifts or served with tea and coffee or as after dinner delights.
250g dried apricots, finely diced
1 tin sweetened condensed milk
2 ½ cups desiccated coconut
1 cup icing sugar
Extra coconut for coating
Mix all ingredients in a bowl. Refrigerate for half an hour and then roll into small balls. (Tip – wet both hands and shake off excess water. The balls are easier to roll and the mixture won't stick to your hands).
Toss in extra coconut.
Life for us has been all about survival on a shoestring budget. I cook from scratch and don't buy prepackaged mixes of anything. I've learnt how to live on very basic (and cheap) staples. I've raised happy and healthy kids and I believe that good food is central to a good life!
I have an unpublished cookbook manuscript that lives on my kitchen bench. This is the collection that I have fed my family from for many years, all made from a core list of practical and economical ingredients. The manuscript is splattered with butter, flour and milk from daily use. It moves between the kitchen and the office as I edit and test-kitchen the recipes.
