    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

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    stuffed ...

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 kg dried prune (with the stones in them not pitted)
    • 500 g chocolate couverture (or good quality dark chocolate)
    • 1/2 cup cognac
    • 20 -30 walnut halves

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Slit prunes with a small sharp knife and remove the stones.
    2. 2
      Place pitted prunes in a small bowl and cover them with the cognac and allow them to soak for at least 30 minutes.
    3. 3
      Open 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.
    4. 4
      Repeat with all prunes.
    5. 5
      Melt chocolate in double boiler and dip each stuffed prune into the melted chocolate with a pair of tongs.
    6. 6
      Place onto a foil-lined tray and sprinkle with remaining walnuts that have been finely chopped.
    7. 7
      Allow to set at room temperature (avoid refrigeration as it takes away the glossy finish and makes them look dull).
    8. 8
      Each piece can be put into a pleated paper cup for an attractive presentation.
    9. 9
      Dried apricots can be substituted for prunes but they are a little drier and harder to stuff.
