Apricot Angel Brownies Recipe

Apricot Angel Brownies Recipe

To tell the truth, I'm not a "chocoholic". I enjoy fruit desserts and custards more than anything. So my brownies have neither milk nor dark chocolate—but still satisfy every sweet tooth. Though my husband and I live in a townhouse, I grow lots of containers on our back deck!
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 25 min. + cooling YIELD:24 servings


  • 4 squares (1 ounce each) white baking chocolate
  • 1/3 cup butter or margarine
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup finely chopped dried apricots
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds
  • 1/4 cup flaked coconut


  • 1. In a saucepan, melt chocolate and butter over low heat, stirring constantly until all of the chocolate is melted. Remove from the heat; stir in brown sugar, eggs and vanilla until blended. Set aside.
  • 2. In a bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt. Stir in chocolate mixture. Combine apricots, almonds and coconuts; stir half into the batter.
  • 3. Pour into a greased 9-in. square baking pan. Sprinkle remaining apricot mixture on top. Bake at 350° for 25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool. Yield: about 2 dozen.

"My husband loves Apricot so I tried this recipe. It is good but very expensive to make so I will only make it for Christmas or special occasions."
