      Loved these! Armagnac soaked prunes, wow! Not too sweet, but mine were just a tad too soft even after chilling them overnight, so might reduce cream a bit next time.

      thank you chefkate for a divine recipe! these were so easy to make and taste heavenly although I thought my brother in law would give his a re-appearance when i told him there were prunes in it!!! i got about 50 teaspoon truffles out of this and needed about double the quantities of cocoa and paprika for the rolling.
