Apricot-Coconut Treats

Although we're visiting Mina's grandparents in Iowa, Mina has definitely found ways to make magic (and a mess) wherever we are.  Today we decided to let her get her hands a bit messy and make a delicious family treat, my Grandfather's favorite Apricot-Coconut Balls.  They are sweet and delicious, and require no cooking, which makes them perfect for hot summer days!  Even better, they only require 3 ingredients, which makes them a great project for little ones. 

1. Start with 3 ingredients: 1 1/2 Cups of dried apricots, 2 Cups of shredded coconut, and 2/3 Cup of sweetened condensed milk
2. Grind the apricots in a food processor until it is nicely ground and looks like this:
3. Combine the coconut, ground apricots and sweetened condensed milk in a large mixing bowl.
4. Mix well, using a spoon (or hands)
5. Roll the mixture into balls.
6. Refrigerate until firm and serve cold.
