- 1 1/2 cups water
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 2 1/2 ounces dark chocolate, broken into pieces
- 24 dried apricot halves
In a medium saucepan, combine the water, lemon juice, cinnamon and dried apricots. Bring to a boil. Then cover and leave to simmer for 6 to 8 minutes or until the dried apricots are plump.
Meanwhile place the chocolate into a microwave-safe bowl and heat on high for about 90 seconds or until thoroughly melted. Stir every 15 or so seconds.
Using tongs, remove the apricots one at a time, shaking off the excess water. Dip half or more of each apricot into the melted chocolate.
Place the dipped apricots onto a cookie sheet lined with wax paper. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before removing.
Store the apricots in a sealed container in the refrigerator.
