Dip about half of each apricot in the melted chocolate and place on the wax paper. If you have nuts, roll the dipped apricot in the finely chopped nuts before resting it on the wax paper. Be generous with the chocolate =)

If you have leftover chocolate, search your pantry for other items to make candy with - I used almonds and dried cranberries

Step 5: Chill out
