Found this one on the Confectionery Thread. Maybe of use.

Apricot Nut Truffles ( makes 50 truffles ) ¼ c cashew nuts, ¼ c blanched almonds, ¼ c chopped dates, 1 ¼ c finely chopped dried apricots, ½ c finely chopped raisins, 1 c coconut, ½ c evaporated Milk, 75 g butter, 1 ¼ c sugar and 300 g choc melts or milk melts.

Place Cashew nuts and almonds in a frying pan, cook over low heat stirring until golden brown, cool then chopped finely. Combine with the dried fruit and coconut. Combine the milk, butter and sugar in a medium saucepan, cook over low heat stirring constantly until the sugar dissolves. Bring to the boil then cook stirring constantly for 5 minutes or until the mixture is pale golden, pour the mixture over the fruit. Cool then shape into balls. Place the choc into a bowl, bring a saucepan of small amount of water to the boil and place the bowl of choc to melt stirring as it melts. Remove the bowl. Dip the truffles into the choc, place on a tray lined with waxed paper, chill until choc sets. Decorate with remaining choc and store in a covered container in the fridge.

"Truffles. thanks to Alison Holst
100 grams butter, 2 cups icing sugar, 3 T cocoa, 1/2 cup chopped sultanas or dried apricots, 3/4 Cup coconut, extra coconut for rolling, 1 - 2 teaspoons liqueur eg, kahlula or Malibu. Cream butter, warming it as little as necessary. Never melt it. Sift in icing sugar and cocoa, mix. Chop sultanas or apricots and add. Mix the coconut into the mixture. Add flavourings. Chill if necessary. Roll into small balls and roll into more coconut. Place finished balls on a flat plate uncovered in fridge for several hours or until firm. Store in jar or tin in fridge. I freeze these and take out when required. They are nice just slightly frozen. These are easy and quick to make.

"Marshmallow & Apricot Roll
You can also roll mix into balls if you wish. 250gm plain biscuits, 1cup dried apricots finely chopped, 100gm small marshmallows, 1 can sweetened condensed milk, 3/4c coconut. Crush biscuits in food processor. Combine biscuits, apricots, marshmallows and condensed milk in large bowl. Place a sheet of baking paper on flat surface and sprinkle 1/2c coconut over the sheet. Press the mix evenly over coconut. Use the paper as a guide to roll mix into a thick log. Sprinkle over extra coconut. Press the log into shape firmly - twist the ends of the paper and refrigerate for 2 hours till firm. Cut into slices.
