Reviews for Bacon-Wrapped Apricot Bites
"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."
