White Chocolate, Coconut & Apricot Balls


Apricot & Coconut Balls

When I was in primary school, I used to buy little apricot and coconut bites from the ‘tuck-shop’ (canteen) on a Friday at recess time. Not every Friday though! Nope, back then, being able to go and buy something from the tuck-shop was a super special thing. You know, like a once or twice a term thing. But boy did I love those little bites (oh and also the Jupiter Caramel Bars… does anyone remember those!?). Anyway, I decided that I would make something similar to the apricot bites… but better.

And so, I made a batch of these Easy No-Bake White Chocolate, Coconut & Apricot Balls. OMG… amazing I tell you! They have that same delicious apricot and coconut taste from the good old tuck-shop days, but they also have a beautiful crunch from the white chocolate. This would have to be one of my favourite flavour combinations ever. Actually, I used those exact same flavours in my Oaty Apricot Bars too!

Now if you’re looking for a recipe that is a perfect little lunchbox filler, then this is just what you need. It’s also a great one for getting kids involved in the kitchen. Because, it’s no-bake, there’s no need to worry about teeny, tiny hands getting burnt. And we all know how much kids love sticking their hands into the mixture and rolling them into balls. Whatever you do though, keep a few balls aside for yourself – you’ll be kicking yourself if you don’t!

10 minute no-bake Apricot Balls

These balls will take you 10 minutes to whip up and you can eat them straight away (which is of course, totally fabulous). But, they get even better when you leave them in the fridge for a few hours. Plus, they’ll taste just as amazing over the next few days. It’s like all of the flavours smooch (hmmm not sure if that’s technically the right word!) together to make the most completely delicious little balls.
