'Chocolate-Apricot Confections' (Veg Times: January '94. Lillian Kayte)
6 oz. semi-sweet non-dairy chocolate (I used choc chips I had on hand)
1/2 cup apple juice (I had none, so subbed orange juice instead)
3 Tbs. light corn syrup
1 cup chopped dried apricots
2 1/2 cups bran flakes cereal, with or w/out raisins (didn't have this either -- I subbed corn flakes)
1/2 cup powdered sugar
Unsweetened cocoa powder, sifted
Melt chocolate in double boiler or microwave. Stir in apple juice and corn syrup. Set aside.
In a food processor, add apricots, bran flakes and powdered sugar, and process until very finely chopped. Combine with chocolate mixture and mix well. Set aside for 30 minutes.
With a small spoon, form mixture into 1/2 - 1 inch balls. Roll balls in cocoa powder (the accompanying photo also shows white ones -- I assume powdered sugar?). Store in covered container in refrigerator for several days before serving to develop flavors. Makes 48 1- inch balls, 16 servings.
