Make a double batch—these go quickly.

Diablos (Prosciutto Wrapped Prunes)

goop

These little morsels can be made ahead and popped in the oven right before guests arrive.

Makes 20 pieces.

20 pitted prunes

1 oz. goat cheese or cream cheese

10 slices serrano ham or prosciutto

1.If necessary, cut a slit into each prune with a paring knife (some will have a natural indentation perfect for filling with cheese).

2. Using a small spoon, fill each prune with ¼ – ½ teaspoon cheese, depending on the size.

3. Wrap ½ slice of prosciutto around the stuffed prune, then roll in your hands until you have a fairly tight, contained ball. If prosciutto doesn’t completely cover the prune, or won’t stay in place, don’t worry; a little variation in shape is fine.

4. Store in the fridge until ready to use.

5. To cook, preheat the oven to 375°F. Arrange the prunes on a foil-lined baking sheet and cook for 15-20 minutes, until the cheese is gooey and the prosciutto is crispy.

6. Serve immediately, but be sure to warn your guests that these are hot!
