  • Cut the fruit leather lengthwise into strips and then cut these in half if they are long. These will be the legs
  • Arrange 3 fruit strip pieces and overlap the pieces, pressing them together in the middle to smoosh the fruit leather to make them stick together.
  • In a microwave safe bowl, melt the chocolate by heating for 30 seconds at a time and stirring after each 30-seconds until the chocolate is melted and smooth.
  • Stir the coconut oil into the chocolate to help thin the chocolate a bit for easier dipping
  • Dip apricots in chocolate and place on top of the fruit leather
  • Add the mini chocolate chips for the eyes
  • Chill in the fridge until set up
  • Enjoy!
