I had a go at making apricot balls today - muesli, dried apricots, honey and butter into the blender etc etc.
The recipe included a cup of coconut, so I chucked that into the blender too.
Whilst the ingredients were blending, I read the recipe.
It said to throw all but the coconut into the blender, then roll the balls in the desiccated coconut.
Ah well, I saved one step and it made no difference. And they don't shed little bits of coconut everywhere.
