I have always had a horrible sweet tooth and honestly, I see nothing wrong with indulging in desserts regularly. I choose to make desserts from scratch most of the time and use real butter, heavy cream and plenty of organic sugar. Of course, this comes with a fairly high calorie count so I try to balance my love of sweets with healthy dessert options when I can. This chocolate dipped apricots recipe is the perfect balance between deliciously sweet and slightly healthy. All the flavor and less of the guilt! It is also incredibly easy to make and requires very little time to put together. If you find yourself craving something sweet, dip a few dried apricots and indulge your sweet tooth! I will include a few affiliate links for topping suggestions if you are inspired to do a little shopping before you start dipping.
