These would make great presents and obviously the longer they are left to soak the more alcohol they will soak up and in turn the longer they are left before eating the more it will mature! 🙂 First of all soak your chosen dried or vacuum packed fruit overnight or so in your preferred alcohol….i used Grand Marnier for the prunes, Disaronno for the apricots and Dark rum for the dates. Once they are soaked to your liking drain and either roll out (or cheat and buy the ready roll) marzipan… Cut small squares and place one piece of fruit in the centre. Wrap up the sides and make sure there is no fruit showing through the marzipan, this way the chocolate wont actually touch the fruit itself (the alcohol may make the chocolate run before it sets)… leave them to one side until they are all finished and ready to dip together… This is the hard bit…let the chocolate set! Dont touch it, dont be tempted to try one (it wont stop at one!) … Once set, drizzle with white chocolate by holding a spoon high above the sweets and work backwards and forwards covering all the sweets at once… Leave to set then remove from the paper and either dish up ready to serve or jar and give as very delicious pressies – you will be asked to make them again i promise!! 🙂 …erm this was one that i had to try, just so i could show you the insides you understand!! lol 😉 Mmmmmmm!!
