Chocolate, chestnut and prune bars


The Ottolenghi cookbook is always so tempting that deciding which cake to cook for our community association post-Christmas get-together was a mouth-watering job in it’s own right.

I finally settled on Khalid’s chocolate and chestnut bars, substituting prunes for the figs. It was delicious: rich and densely chocolatey. The only problem was that demand outstripped supply!

Definitely worth repeating, though next time I’d try to start far enough in advance to soak the prunes in brandy, and substitute extra prunes and chestnuts for the white chocolate chunks.
