Soft figs coated in dark chocolate, stuffed with crunchy almonds and sprinkled with sea salt.  A simple snack for a healthy midday pick-me-up.

 

Ingredients

  • 12 dried figs (I like Black Mission figs)
  • ½ bar of dark or raw chocolate
  • 12 almonds
  • sea salt

Instructions

  1. Simply take one whole almond and push it into the base of the fig (the end without the stem). Then dip into the melted chocolate.
  2. For the chocolate coating - simply melt the bar of chocolate over low heat in a saucepan, stirring as it melts.
  3. Then dip the stuffed figs into the chocolate sauce, top with sea salt and place in the freezer to harden for 15 minutes. Enjoy!
