  • 100 g dried prunes
  • thinly-pared peel of 1 orange
  • 1 cloves
  • 1 allspice berry
  • grating of nutmeg
  • 25 g butter
  • 125 g dark chocolate
  • 1 tbsp amaretto


  1. Place the prunes in a small pan and cover with water. Add the orange peel, clove, allspice berry & nutmeg. Bring to the boil and simmer for 10 minutes.
  2. Remove the orange peel and clove and puree the rest using a stick blender or mini food processor. I used my Optimum Nutri Force Extractor.

  3. While the prunes are still warm, add the butter and chocolate. Leave for a few minutes to melt, then stir until smooth.
  4. Finally stir in the amaretto and spoon into little ramekins or chocolate pots.

Recipe Notes

Can be made the day before serving.

For a special occasion, decorate with gold leaf, alternatively grate some chocolate over the top or add a dusting of glitter.
