Instructions

    In a food processor, grind the walnuts, hazelnuts, and salt into a coarse meal. (Do not overprocess.)

    Melt the chocolate in a heat-proof bowl over a pot of barely simmering water, ensuring that the bowl doesn’t touch the water. Alternatively, microwave the chocolate at half power for 2 minutes. Stir with a rubber spatula and let cool slightly.

    Preheat the oven to 350F. Line two 46-by-13-cm / 18-by-13- half-sheet pans with parchment paper.

    In a stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, whip the egg whites, sugar, and cream of tartar until the whites hold stiff peaks when the whisk is removed from the bowl, about 2 minutes. Using the spatula, gently fold the chocolate and nuts into the egg whites until the batter is uniform, then fold in the dried plums.

    Using a 30-ml / 2-tablespoon scoop or a spoon, portion the batter onto the prepared pans. Bake until firm on the outside but still soft in the center, about 12 minutes. Let cool on the sheet pans.
