I made these today and they so easy and so delicious I felt the need to share! It's awesome that they're vegan, gluten-free and not too unhealthy, yet still taste totally decadent and look beautiful! perfect holiday gift.
You will need:
vegan semisweet chocolate chips
1. heat up an inch of water in a saucepan. put a metal bowl on top of the saucepan and melt the chocolate chips in it. (my preferred method of melting chocolate chips. because they are melted by steam, there is no danger of the chocolate burning. but you can also melt the chocolate chips in the microwave if you prefer.)
2. cover a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil. one by one, dip apricots in the melted chocolate, then sprinkle with a pinch of sea salt. you may need to heat the chocolate up one more time halfway through.
3. let them cool at room temperature until the chocolate has hardened.
I used 2 bags of apricots and 1 1/4 bags of chocolate chips and it yielded about 120 of these bad boys.
