Cinnamoned Apricots with Yogurt, Candied Nuts & Chocolate

Serves 1-2

Ingredients:
3/4 cup plain yogurt or thick Greek yogurt
1-2 ripe apricots
2-3 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 tbsp water
1-2 tbsp of chopped dark chocolate
Crumbled peanut brittle (I used store-bought)

Method:
1. If you have regular plain yogurt, you should thicken it up, by putting it in a sieve lined with cheesecloth, and leaving it there for at least half an hour. Most of the water will drain out and you'll be left with a smoother, thicker yogurt.

2. Chop the apricots. Put them in a small pan and add sugar, cinnamon and water. Cook it on med-low for about 8-10 mins until it becomes dense and jam-like. Set aside to cool.

3. Spoon some yogurt into a glass, followed by a layer of the apricot compote, bits of peanut brittle and chocolate. Repeat layer with the remaining yogurt, apricot compote and finish off with more peanut brittle and dark chocolate. Proceed to eat all of it, while daydreaming of a day when you might be vacationing in Tuscany.
