Apricot & Macadamia Bliss Balls

I have this display folder of recipes that I find in magazines.

I’ve properly only made a small percentage of these recipes.

The whole point of this 18 in 18 challenge was to get me out of my comfort zone.

While searching for another recipe (that I’ve made a few times), I came across this one.

The original recipe can be found here

Dried peaches must be a seasonal item, as I can’t get them at the moment in my supermarket, so I subbed peaches for apricots.

Delicious either way.
