  1. Place all the ingredients in a food processor and blitz until the almonds and dried apricots are finely chopped and sticking together. Test by pressing a small amount between your fingers.
  2. Take one tablespoon of the mixture at a time and shape into bite-sized balls.
  3. Store in the fridge in an airtight container, where they will last for a couple of weeks. They also freeze very well. Can be frozen directly after making, wrapped in cling film or in a freezer bag. To defrost, place in the fridge and leave to fully defrost, approximately 4 hrs.
