Method

  1. Gently warm the prunes and Armagnac together in a small pan for 3-4 mins until almost boiling. Remove the pan from the heat, then set aside and leave to infuse. Once cooled, whizz in a blender until smooth.

  2. Heat the oven to 200C, gas 6. Lightly grease 6 dariole moulds, then dust with cocoa powder and set aside. Gently melt the chocolate and butter in a saucepan. Remove from the heat and stir through the sugar, eggs and prune mixture. Fold in the flour and pour into the prepared cake moulds.

  3. Bake for 20-25 mins until just set. Once cooked, turn out and allow to cool slightly.

  4. Meanwhile, whip the cream and icing sugar to soft peaks. Spoon over the puds and top with half a mini chocolate bar and glitter.
