Hazelnut and Apricot Candy
[Vegan dessert recipe]

Who knew that making candied fruits and nuts would be so easy. From “squirrel food” to hard candy in only 30 minutes. 50% healthy (if you ignore the sugar), 100% vegan.  I think this little sugar bombs would make a nice addition to your Christmas cookies. Makes a great food gift in a jar.
