Perfectionist cook's Note:
This is much nicer than it sounds. It is an elegant and attractive sweet to serve after a dinner and I make it every Easter as it is vegan or 'nistissimo' as the Greeks say. Note that the preparation time is just an estimate.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1Slit prunes with a small sharp knife and remove the stones.
- 2Place pitted prunes in a small bowl and cover them with the cognac and allow them to soak for at least 30 minutes.
- 3Open up each prune and insert a walnut half and then press it closed again. The cut sides should stick together and the walnut be completely enclosed.
- 4Repeat with all prunes.
- 5Melt chocolate in double boiler and dip each stuffed prune into the melted chocolate with a pair of tongs.
- 6Place onto a foil-lined tray and sprinkle with remaining walnuts that have been finely chopped.
- 7Allow to set at room temperature (avoid refrigeration as it takes away the glossy finish and makes them look dull).
- 8Each piece can be put into a pleated paper cup for an attractive presentation.
- 9Dried apricots can be substituted for prunes but they are a little drier and harder to stuff.
