Peanut Butter Stuffed Prunes.

It’s always the little things in life you tend to cherish and miss. As a boy on the islands I fondly recall these wonderful treats at parties and any sort of social gathering and how much they remind me of happy times. When one thinks about dessert, prunes is definitely not something which comes to mind. After-all, people only eat prunes if they have problems going to the bathroom..right?  WRONG! And I’ll prove it with this simple recipe.

You’ll Need…

Pitted Prunes
Smooth Peanut Butter

Notes. You can certainly use prunes with the seeds, but it’s takes a lot of time to remove them. Other than peanut butter, you can also stuff them with Nutella or a combination of nutella and peanut butter. For a more fancy finish you can place the peanut butter in a piping bag and use that to stuff the prunes.

* Remember if you’re serving this to guests, to mention that there is peanuts in this in the event there are any relating allergies.

The amount of prunes and peanut butter needed depends on how many of these you plan on making. You’ll need about 1/2 teaspoon peanut butter for each prune.

Using a pairing knife or scissors cut a slit in each prune, about 1 inch across and deep enough to stuff (be careful). Then open each slit and stuff with about 1/2 teaspoon peanut butter. You’re done!

You can make these in advance and place them (covered) in the fridge for a a day or two. This is without a doubt the fastest recipe I’ve ever shared and those of you familiar with these lovely treats may not even see this as being a recipe.

    Chris I made these stuffed prunes every time I had parties since my early twenties. I’d stick the stuffed prunes onto toothpicks and then stick the toothpicks onto apples or oranges; I’m now 61 and I still do. I love them but I must try the Nutella as you said; it sounds good!

    My mom used to make these for me when I was little. I bought some prunes yesterday and made some for myself. Just for curiosity, I googled to see if anyone else eats these and your website was the first I saw. Now I have to look at all your recipes while I’m here!

    I still love these, I remember growing up in Trinidad when my older brothers and sister used to have their house parties and this was a must along with cheese paste sandwiches, and other fine delicacies..
