These are made with a surpirse ingredient, prunes. These are made a little differently than are the others that I have found posted. I don't know where I found this recipe but here it is.
- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 20 (4 1/2 ounce) chocolate wafer cookies
- 4 ounces chopped almonds (optional) or 4 ounces chopped walnuts (optional) or 4 ounces chopped cashews (optional)

- 1⁄2 cup confectioners' sugar
- 1⁄4 cup Bourbon or 1⁄2 cup brandy
- 1⁄4 cup sweetened condensed milk
