18 large apricot halves
1/2 cup bittersweet chocolate, broken into
bits, or chocolate chips
In small microwave-safe dish, melt chocolate on HIGH for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes, stopping cooking every 30 seconds to stir. Do not overcook or chocolate will burn. Alternatively, melt chocolate in double boiler over very low heat until just liquid, being careful not to overcook. Dip apricots in chocolate, covering approximately half the apricot. Place dipped apricots on cookie sheet covered with wax paper; chill in refrigerator until chocolate hardens, about 20 minutes.
