Chocolate Dipped Prunes

Mix and match fillings and toppings to create your favorite versions of these Chocolate Dipped 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 California 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 the 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.
