Apricot pecan orange marbles

Apricots are a delicious addition to any dessert options. This one combines the tangy and sweet flavors with a bit of crunch. The addition of cranberries adds color and tang and the orange zest just enhances the flavor overall. I like these chunky and chewy. If you prefer a smooth marble then grind the apricots after heating in a food processor with all the ingredients to get a smooth mixture.

11/2 cup apricots
1 cup pecans
4 tbsp orange juice
1 tbsp orange jest
1/4 - 1/2 tsp dry ginger powder
Handful dried cranberries
Unsweetened shredded coconut for rolling(optional)
  1. Chop the apricots and pecans to small pieces.
  2. Combine apricot and orange juice in a non stick pan and heat gently till the mixture becomes sticky, about 2-4 minutes.
  3. Add all the other ingredients and mix well. 
  4. Cool enough to touch easily and using wet palms roll the mixture into small marbles. 
  5. Roll over shredded coconut (optional) and cool completely.
