Nutty Apricot Balls

8 oz. dried apricots (unsweetened)
1 c. sweetened flaked coconut
1/4 c. + 1/3 c. pecan halves
1/4 c. honey

Start by processing the 1/3 cup pecan halves in your food processor.  The balls will be rolled in these, so they need to be very finely ground, almost like a meal.  Remove to a small bowl.

Place the dried apricots, coconut, and 1/4 cup pecan halves in the food processor.  Process until finely chopped and combined well.  Add the honey and process until it is evenly distributed.  Place the mixture in a bowl, cover, and refrigerate about 30 – 60 minutes until chilled through.

Use a spoon to scoop up a small amount of the mixture.  Press it together with your hands and form a small ball 1 – 1 1/2 inches in diameter.  Roll the ball in the finely ground nuts.  Place on a serving plate or in a container.  Store in the refrigerator until ready to eat.
