Prep Time   2 Days Serves  20


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.
