thinly-pared peel of 1 orange
grating of nutmeg
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.
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
While the prunes are still warm, add the butter and chocolate. Leave for a few minutes to melt, then stir until smooth.
Finally stir in the amaretto and spoon into little ramekins or chocolate pots.
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.
