Easy Apricot and Goat Cheese Appetizer

Absolutely Fabulous Apricot, Goat Cheese, and Almond Bites

Fair warning: set out a tray of these jewel-like apricot, goat cheese, and almond morsels at your next party, and they'll likely be gobbled up in a matter of minutes. (They're that good.) What your guests won't know is how easy they are to assemble — it's feasible to put together a second batch in a matter of mere minutes to reinforce supplies. Try them for yourself, and you'll understand their appeal.

Notes

If not using marcona almonds, substitute roasted salted almonds (the salt is key to the appetizer's flavor).
