Gale - chop 'em up and use them in any good cookie receipe........ mix up Nestles chocolate chip cookie recipe but omit the chocolate chips - just stir in the apricots.  Or go ahead  --- toss those chips in anyway.  White chips would be great.

I have a great fudge recipe.  You can easily double the recipe.

Trail Mix White Fudge
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/2 Cup dried apricots, chopped into 1/2 inch bits
1/2 Cup chopped roasted pistachios
1/2 Cup crystallized ginger, chopped into 1/2 inch bits
1 can, 15 ounces evaporated milk
2/3 Cup sugar
1/4 tsp salt
8 ounces (1 1/2 Cups) white chocolate chips
1 1/2 cup mini marshmallows
Spray 8 inch square pan then line with foil or parchment paper.
Place cranberries, apricots, nuts, ginger in a bowl and set aside.
In a heavy saucepan bring milk,sugar and salt to a rolling boil.  Simmer stirring until mixture turns a pale caramel color, about 5 minutes.  Add marshmallows and white chocolate.  Stir until marshmallows and chocolate melt.  Pour mixture into the fruit and nut mixture and mix until all is combined.  (I just pour fruit and nuts into the pan it eliminates cleaning two messy containers.)
Press mixture into prepared pan, let cool for 1 to 2 hours.
Lift fudge from pan and cut into squares.

I don't have pistachios so I'll use walnuts.  I have a bag of dried strawberries so I'll add those in addition to the other fruit.

Sorry Gale, I don't really have any recipes for dried apricots except the Fruit Cake in my Betty Crocker cookbook(only make that for Christmas).  Most of the time I just eat the apricots right out of the bag lol.  They are so good when fresh apricots are out of season.

Thanks Nikki and Nancy for the recipes.  May have to try those when it gets a little cooler here(97 today).

Nikki ---- the Trail Mix White Fudge is finished ---- it's cooling in the 'fridge.  I tasted the "liquid" stuff and it's WONDERFUL.  What an incredible taste!
I used Carnation evaporated milk and its can contains just 12 oz .... not the 15 oz the recipe calls for.  I had just that one 12 can so that's all I used - it seems to have worked.  And - lol - I didn't have any cranberries so, with the apricots, I used blueberries and strawberries --- gee, I hope those strawberries soften a bit --  and I just can't imagine getting a bite of that ginger.
That's sure a fun recipe with lots of things to add and try.
Many thanks!!

Hey Nikki --- I didn't do very well.  This morning with great joy I looked at the fudge after its night in the 'fridge.   It was still almost liquid. 
I melted a bag of white chips and stirred the fudge into that.   Now everything is cold and ALMOST solid. 
I've had a big mess and lots of work.  I wonder what I did wrong??? FrownEmbarassed
