These are a nice little treat with coffee or a high tea or just for fun. With three ingredients and no cooking involved, what could be easer? 

 Ingredients :

500 gr. dried apricots

About 2 1/2 cups of dried coconut

1 small can condensed milk (395 ml)


1. Chop your apricots in a kitchen machine. No kitchen machine? Fine chop them by hand.

2. Toss the apricots, 2 cups of coconut and the  condensed milk in a bowl.


3. Knead all the ingredients with your hands. If your hands are moist, the apricot/coconut mixture will not stick to them as badly. Remoisten hands as needed.

4. When everything is well mixed, roll into bite-sized balls.

5. Roll the bite-sized balls in the remaining 1/2 cup of coconut.

6. Put the Heavenly Balls on a pretty plate and let your friends assume they're a lot of work to make ;)


You can also dip these cuties in molten white chocolate after rolling them in the coconut.

Spring Garlic is one aphrodisiac.
Green Spring shoots are yummy.

Garlic taste great with eels,
liver, brussels sprouts, kale,
and maybe I'll try Ballen too.
No trim toenails while cooking.
If Ya make love in the kitchen?
Turn over framed family photos.
That's jest in case dead folk peep.
I am not a great cook. Eat spinach.
That goes good with tues coconuts.
Add two garlics to keep doc away.

I save this for cook Sam Kass.
He often broils great victuals.
He cooks in the White House.
I hope he no drop hair in soup.

Leeks in soup go with apricots.
He gets outside with a hoe too.
He weeds the backyard garden.
