Apricot Pâte de Fruit
According to Jacques Pepin, "Pates de fruits, or fruit jellies, are very popular around the holidays--and usually expensive." In France, pates de fruits are sold in high-end patisseries or pastry shops. The French roll them in sanding sugar, which has large crystals that cling to the candy without melting. Table sugar also works, as long as the jellies are rolled in it just before serving.
