  1. This looks delicious and I bet it would be very good with salted pistachios. I love sea salt on dark chocolate. My favorite!

    • Me too Sigrid! They were so easy but really good. Was almost embarassed to post something so simple but my husband, a non apricot lover, raved about them so….I posted them! Happy Valentine’s Day!
