I love most any kind of chocolate covered fruit, and especially dark chocolate dipped apricots. There’s something about the combination of a sweet and slightly chewy plump dried apricot and crunchy dark chocolate that never fails to delight me. And unlike fresh fruit, dried apricots are available all year round.
Simple and delicious, dark chocolate dipped apricots are a great easy healthy way to satisfy your sweet tooth for just 1 Weight Watchers PointsPlus, a bargain, if there ever was one! They are a sweet treat you can feel good about indulging in.

Author: Simple Nourished Living
Recipe type: Dessert, Candy, Snack
2 ounces dark chocolate chopped into small pieces
18 dried apricots (preferably Sunsweet)
Line a large plate or baking sheet with wax paper or parchment paper.
Melt chocolate in a small heat resistant bowl set over a pan of barely simmering water. Remove from the heat. (Or melt the chocolate in a small bowl in the microwave for one minute. Stir and continue to heat in 30-second increments until melted.)
Dip half of a dried apricot in the melted chocolate and let the excess drip off. Place the apricot on the wax paper lined plate. Repeat with the remaining apricots. Refrigerate until the chocolate has set, about 20 minutes.
