Chocolate Dipped Prunes

Mix and match fillings and toppings to create your favorite versions of these stuffed Prunes for holiday gifting or parties.

Servings: 12 (2 each)
Prep Time:


  • 1 cup (about 6 ounces) pitted Prunes
  • Fillings: nuts, candied ginger, prepared almond paste or marzipan
  • 6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
  • Toppings: chopped nuts, candied ginger pieces or candy decors


Cut slit into the side of each Prune and stuff with small piece or portion of filling as desired. Pinch to close; shape to form round shape. Set aside.

Place chocolate in a small heatproof bowl, set in a pot of hot (not boiling) water over low heat; allow to melt, stirring occasionally until smooth. (Chocolate should be fluid and barely warm.) Remove from heat. Line baking sheet with aluminum foil or wax paper. Using a fork, dip Prunes, 1 at a time, into chocolate; drain excess. Place on prepared baking sheet; decorate with toppings, as desired. Refrigerate immediately until set.

When chocolate has hardened, transfer to jars or containers for gift-giving. Store, covered, in a cool place, away from direct sun or heat.

Tip: Melted white chocolate can be drizzled over chocolate-dipped Prunes before adding toppings if desired.
