Chocolate & Prune Refrigerator Bars

Made these for a friend for her birthday (she loves prunes) and I guess they didn't last long...easy and quick. From Best Ever Three & Four Ingredient Cookbook. They came out rather thin; adding more chocolate wouldn't hurt, I think. Also I recommend lining the pan with parchment paper or spraying with cooking spray so that the bars are easier to remove. Cooking time is chilling time. I don't know why, but recipezaar insists that the ingredient be listed as "prune", not "prunes."

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put the graham crackers in a platic bag and smash into small pieces with a rolling pin. Roughly chop the prunes.
  2. Break the chocolate into small pieces and place in a heatproof bowl. Add the butter and melt in the microwave on high for 1-2 minutes. Stir to mix.
  3. Stir the crackers and prunes into the chocolate.
  4. Spoon the mixture into an 8 inch/20cm cake pan and chill for 1-2 hours, until set.
  5. Using a sharp knife, cut into 12 bars.

I at first didn't care for them--seemed way too chocolatey to me, but on the 2nd day, I tried them again and they weren't so bad. They came out really flat, so I don't know if I did something wrong because they weren't big enough to be even fudge-sized. But today it dawned on me that they taste like Raisinettes. With graham crackers :).

Great little treats that turn out rather fudge-like. I cut them into 36 small squares. Everyone loved them -- even the prune hater was converted. My prunes were a bit dry, so I soaked them in hot water for 10 minutes before draining and chopping them. We don't have graham crackers in Australia, so I used 8 McVittie's digestive biscuits. Nut lovers could probably stir in some chopped walnuts. Another great find from Pick a Chef. Thanks!
