Chocolate Prune Bits

I sang the naughty Chef song from South Park while I made these, except unlike Chef's these are very sweet instead of salty ;P

1 cup of cocoa
1 cup of whole almonds
17 whole prunes
1 tbs honey
1/2 cup of coconut
hot water as needed


I used my Kitchen Aid Blender to create the mixture.

Pulse almonds.
Cut prunes in half & add to almonds.  Chop them in the blender.
Add cocoa, mix in the blender.
Add honey, again mix in the blender.

Place mixture into a bowl.  Add small amounts of hot water as needed to keep the mixture moist.

Take small amounts of mix, roll between your hands into ball shapes.  Roll in coconut.

Place each one on wax paper to set, approximately 20 minutes. 

Tip: I prefer these frozen.   I place them in glass containers and place in the freezer.  You can easily pop one or two out at a time.  Which is Tip 2, prunes are high in fiber  ~ don't eat too many!
