Chocolate Double Date

62894-chocolate1
What do you get when a self-imposed cleanse meets dessert? Chocolate covered prunes and toasted almonds! We were out of our usual favorite go-to fruit, the strawberry, so we combed our reserves for the perfect substitute. D’noir prunes are some of the juiciest we’ve ever tasted and nothing beats toasting your own nuts.

For the dark chocolate we got two different varieties from South America. Place a glass bowl above a pan of water and melt the chocolate pieces with a few pats of butter, vanilla extract, and fresh vanilla bean.When the chocolate has reached a smooth consistency, remove the bowl from the heat. Line a plate with parchment paper and start dipping. For the chocolate covered almonds, pour a layer of chocolate over the nuts and finish with some sea salt. Refrigerate until hardened. Enjoy!
