Nutritional Facts

1 brownie equals 145 calories, 8 g fat (5 g saturated fat), 24 mg cholesterol, 50 mg sodium, 20 g carbohydrate, 1 g fiber, 2 g protein.

Directions

  1. Cut apricots into quarters. In a microwave, melt 1 ounce chocolate; stir until smooth. Dip one end of apricots in chocolate; allow excess to drip off. Place on waxed paper; let stand until set.
  2. Line a greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan with waxed paper and grease the paper; set aside. In a microwave, melt butter and remaining chocolate; stir until smooth. Cool slightly.
  3. In a large bowl, beat eggs and sugar. Stir in vanilla and chocolate mixture. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; gradually add to chocolate mixture.
  4. Transfer to prepared pan. Bake at 325° for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean (do not overbake). Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely.
  5. Place preserves in a food processor; cover and process until smooth. Cut brownie into four 7-1/2-in. x 5-in. rectangles. Spread preserves over two rectangles; top with remaining rectangles. Cover and freeze for 20 minutes. Cut each rectangle into 12 squares; cut each square diagonally into two triangles.
  6. For glaze, in a microwave-safe bowl, combine the chocolate, cream and butter. Microwave at 50% power for 1-2 minutes or until smooth, stirring twice. Cool slightly, stirring occasionally. Drizzle over brownies. Top each with an apricot piece. Yield: 4 dozen.
