- dried apricots : 400 g

- marzipan : 200 g
- dark chocolate : 300 g
- pistachios : 100 g (chopped or milled)
Stages of cooking
Take a deep bowl and put the dried apricots inside.
Pour the apricots with cognac (or any other alcoholic drink) and leave them to soak for a while. If you plan to treat kids with the dessert, then use any syrup or even juice instead of alcoholic drinks.
Form round-shaped candies out of marzipan. The number of marzipan balls should equal that of dried apricots.
Place marzipan balls inside dried apricots, one at a time.
Melt dark chocolate on the water bath.
Now, chop or mill the pistachios.
Use a toothpick to take a dry apricot, dip it into chocolate and put on the baking paper to dry. Repeat the step until the dried apricots are over.
Dredge the candies with chopped or milled pistachios before the chocolate dries out. Serve and enjoy the treat!
