eggs, melted butter.

Separate into 3 bowls evenly. After which you leave one bowl plain, in 2nd

bowl add 8 drops of red and the last bowl add 8 drops of green coloring.

Then in greased pans (or parchment lined pans) pour mixture so it covers all of the pan evenly. Bake for 10 minutes at 350.

Remove from oven, on wax paper on foil, first turn over green layer, coat

lightly with apricot, then white layer over that and coat with preserve.

Last red layer melt chocolate in pot with 1 tablespoon of oil. Coat one

layer with chocolate, refrigerate until hard then turn over wax paper or

foil. Coat second layer, let it get hard then cut and slice.
