    1 1/4 cups (310 mL) brewed coffee
    20 dried pitted prunes, quartered (about 1 cup/250 mL)
    3 Tbsp (45 mL) honey
    1 whole star anise
    1/4 tsp (1 mL) cinnamon
    1 tsp (5 mL) orange zest
    1 tsp (5 mL) chocolate extract (optional)
    3 Tbsp (45 mL) cocoa nibs
    3 cups (750 mL) low-fat plain Greek yogourt

    In medium-sized saucepan combine coffee, prunes, honey, star anise, cinnamon, orange zest, and chocolate extract (if using). Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer covered for 10 minutes.

    With slotted spoon, remove prunes from pan. Simmer liquid, uncovered, over medium-high heat until reduced and syrupy, about 5 minutes. Discard star anise and combine prunes, cocoa nibs, and syrup. Let cool before serving over yogourt.
