Drunken California Prunes in Dark Chocolate

Servings: 20
Prep Time:


  • 20 California Prunes (approx. 200 – 250 g)
  • 1/4 Cup whiskey, rum or other alcohol
  • 2/3 Cups dark chocolate
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • Orange and lime zest
  • 2 tbsp cane sugar
  • 4 tbsp water


Day 1

Pour California Prunes with alcohol and let them stand for 1 hour to soak with an alcohol. Within a day, prunes can be stirred several times.

Day 2

Dissolve cane sugar and water in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Add orange and lime zest and cook for 3 minutes.
Then remove single strips on the baking paper and cool down (zest can be formed into various shapes, after congeal it’ll be a decoration).
Melt chocolate and butter in a water bath until you get a smooth texture. Dip pre-soaked California Prunes in the chocolate mass (barbeque stick may be helpful) and set aside on a baking paper.
Decorate covered with chocolate prunes with prepared orange and lime strips.
