Ingredients

Serves: 0

Metric Cups

Method

Chocolate Prunes is a community recipe submitted by filleanglaise and has not been tested by Nigella.com so we are not able to answer questions regarding this recipe.

  • Melt the chocolate in a bain marie and add very finely chopped crystallised ginger (to taste, really).
  • Using a cocktail stick to pick up the prunes/apricots, coat them in the chocolate by dunking them. Place the coated prune onto a greaseproof surface with the cocktail stick still in place (when the chocolate hardens it sort of "cements" the stick in place making them much easier to eat)
  • Place in an airtight container in the fridge until needed Photo here - http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v246/janeroper1/DSC04543.jpg The prunes and apricots I used were very moist, but I thought that it might be nice also to soak the prunes and apricots, maybe in some cinnamon tea and some sort of booze - brandy/cognac for the prunes and Cointreau for the apricots) They were totally delicious!
