Ingredients

  • 1215 Brown Turkey Figs rinsed
  • 1 cup Dark Chocolate (Dairy Free can be found at Trader Joes)
  • Toppings: Raw unsweetened coconut, sea salt, zest from 1 orange and chopped pecans for crunch.

Instructions

  1. Slice figs into halves.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  3. Heat dark chocolate in a double boiler or in 30 second intervals in the microwave, until fully melted.
  4. Dip fig halves in dark chocolate and top each with toppings. Raw coconut, sea salt, orange zest or chopped pecans.
  5. Set aside to cool and allow the chocolate to harden, about 30 minutes.
  6. You can make the figs in advance and place them in the fridge in a sealed container for a few days if you choose, however they turned out best for me when made the night before.
  7. Serve with your holiday cheese course, favorite red wine, or use them to top ice-cream.

Notes

Use vegan/dairy free chocolate to make this vegan friendly.
