Prune Pralines with Rum

HTML tutorial

Culinary Blog of 2013.
I had to check it, I just had to.
The moment I did… I got depressed. Seriously. When my eyes saw all this vegetarian stuff, I just started wondering where we were going with all this cooking and baking… Kind of sad it was for me to see that the world chose this new fashion over our beautiful tradition of cooking.
And… you know what? I was sooooooo wrong! I can’t recall being so wrong!
I checked one of the recipes and I was left speechless. That is why, I would like to send my apologies to the author of Jadłonomia. I hope you’ll meet less judgemental people on your culinary way :)
These pralines are flawless! I would have never thought you could make such food magic using only few ingredients, fooling one of the biggest chocolate-lovers, by the way ;)
If the rest of the recipes are equally good, I’ve got no further questions :)

It’s fast, it’s healthy, it’s so unphotogenic, yet delicious :)
With slight changes I have introduced :)

One more thing, is it possible to prepare it avoiding eating half of it straight from the bowl? :D

Ingredients (yields around 20 pralines):

  • 1/2 cup prunes
  • 1/2 cup dates
  • 1/2 cup hazelnuts
  • 1/2 cup almonds
  • 1 tsp cocoa
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup rum

Blend prunes and dates for a moment.
Pour them with water combined with rum and boil it.
Leave it aside for cooling and boozing :)

Ground hazelnuts and almonds with cocoa.

Add chilled boozed fruit and blend it all till it’s smooth and sticky and fully combined.

Form little balls.
You may sprinkle them with cocoa or chopped nuts.
I decided to leave them as they were :)

I keep them in the fridge just because they’re a bit gluey :)
