Keep Calm & Eat Chocolate
RATING: Epic Fail! Don’t follow this recipe at home.
Disclosure: I made up this Drunken Prunes And Chocolate recipe and no professional cook is responsible. Of course, this is just the beginning of the Drunken Prune Journey…
- 500 grams pitted prunes, 150 ml brandy, dark chocolate chunks, finely grated lemon rind, double creme to add to a very small and intense serving.
Roughly chop prunes. Place in bowl and throw in brandy knowing you’ve possibly just wasted it. Tip both into super clean glass jar because now you are going to pretend to “bottle it” for a while.
So 1 hour, 1 day or 1 month later, select a gorgeous bowl. Spoon out a couple of tablespoons of very drunken prunes into it. Artfully scatter your dark chocolate chunks. Even more artistically, drizzle a dash of the brilliant yellow citrus rind to lift the darkness.
Now, playfully add a dollop of the double creme or my divine Chocolate Brandy Ice Creme Cake, an earlier successful recipe.
Prepare to be very disappointed. My husband ate the chocolate chunks and the cockroaches in the compost bin enjoyed the free booze.
