Cream butter and both sugars with a mixer until light and fluffy. Reduce speed to low. Add salt, vanilla, and eggs, and beat until well combined, about 1 minute. Add flour mixture gradually, beating until just combined. Stir in chocolate and Sweetglow® apricots. Cover and refrigerate until cold, about 30 minutes.
