R.D. Abbie Gellman shares a great way to incorporate fruit into your Thanksgivukkah dessert with this healthy recipe for Apricot Gelt.

The finale in our Thanksgivukkah series is, as expected, dessert! A long standing Hanukkah tradition is to give children chocolate gelt, which are “coins” made of chocolate wrapped in gold foil. Here’s our fruity twist on Hanukkah gelt, made of dried apricots dipped in chocolate and garnished with sea salt for a sweet and salty treat.

Gut Yontiff! Happy holiday!


Healthy Apricot Gelt Recipe

Makes ~ 12 servings (6 pcs per person)


1 ½ lbs. dried apricots
1 lb. dark chocolate chips
1 tbsp. sea salt

Directions


Using heavy skillet or mallet, flatten apricots to ~1/4 inch thick and set aside.

Place chocolate in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave in 15-second intervals, stirring and scraping down sides between, until chocolate is just melted.

Dip each apricot in chocolate, coating ½ to ¾ of the apricot. Place on wire racks set over parchment or wax paper, sprinkle with sea salt, and let stand until set.

Transfer apricots to baking sheets lined with parchment or wax paper and refrigerate until firm. Can be refrigerated in an airtight container up to 3 days.
