Chocolate Dipped Prunes

Personally, I think prunes get a bad rap.  They are delicious, full of antioxidants, and help with your digestive health.  Of course, dipping them in chocolate makes them feel like a decadent treat.  Enjoy!

Bite sized dessert is ready in 20 minutes
2c chilled prunes
1c semisweet or dark chocolate chips

1. Heat a saucepan filled 1/4 with water over high heat until boiling.  Place a glass or metal bowl over it and turn it down to a simmer.  Place chocolate chips in the bowl and stir until completely melted.
2. Line a baking sheet with nonstick foil.  One by one, dip each prune 1/2 way in chocolate and place on the baking sheet.  When finished, place the whole tray of dipped prunes in the fridge until the chocolate sets (about 15 minutes).  Store leftovers in the fridge to keep the prunes fresh.
