A very interesting recipe! I made a half batch and used pecans and sherry instead of almonds and cognac. Hazelnuts and Frangelico, or almonds and Amaretto would be good! Next time. :-) I had a bit of trouble rolling balls of paste as it was loose, and ended up piping it into the prunes. I think they're perfect at this stage. The caramel drizzled over just became streaks of hardened candy. Sure, it added crunch, but not much flavor and was not worth the trouble. The stuffed prunes alone were good enough! Would be pretty and unique on a tea tray at a shower-type event, garden party, etc. Thanks for an inspiring recipe.
