A small bite-size dessert to help bring in the holiday joy. My recommendation is to use brandy that you would drink yourself. I live by the rule if you wouldn’t drink it, don’t cook with it. It pairs well with some egg nog or a warm holiday spiced drink.

Ingredients

  • ½ cup dried apricots (chopped)
  • 2 tablespoons brandy
  • 3.5 oz dark semi-sweet chocolate
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup fine granulated sugar
  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour sifted
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • Chocolate Frosting
  • 1.75 oz dark semi-sweet chocolate
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1 ½ cups powdered sugar (sifted)
  • 1 tablespoon butter

Instructions 

  • Combine apricots and brandy and set aside for 15mins to soak.
  • Melt chocolate and butter together, and stir in milk, egg, sugar, flour, and baking powder. Mix well. Stir the apricots into the mixture.
  • Spoon mixture into an 8-inch baking pan lightly greased. Bake at 350˚F for 12-15 minutes or until firm.
  • Cool in the pan and coat with the icing.
  • To make the icing melt together, chocolate and milk blend in powdered sugar and butter. Mix well and garnish with diced apricots.
