Bacon-Wrapped Apricot Bites Recipe

These sweet and slightly smoky snacks are easy to eat, so be prepared with an extra batch. For a change, sprinkle them with a bit of blue cheese or toasted almonds. &mdash:Tammie Floyd, Plano, Texas

"I thought these were easy to make and tasted delicious. My guests were hesitant to try though. They thought it was a weird combo and unhealthy. :( I ended up eating most of them myself (not a complaint). I'm going to try them again but for a Christmas brunch munchie and see if anyone has changed their tune on them."
