- white chocolate chips
- dried apricots
- fleur de sel (any sea salt will do, but this is really the best)
- Place the white chocolate chips in a bowl and microwave them for 30 seconds. Stir well and repeat. At between 1-2 minutes you will have a perfectly smooth dipping sauce. For 1 cup of chips it usually take 1½ minutes.
- Working fairly quickly, dip a dried apricot into the chocolate and swirl, covering half with chocolate. Place it on a piece of parchment paper. If you're doing a lot and the chocolate starts to harden, microwave for 30 seconds and stir again.
- While still wet, sprinkle a light dusting of fleur de sel over candy. The sweet-salty contrast is amazing. Place the candies in your refrigerator for 5 minutes to set.
