Fresh, organic fruit is the tastiest, most flavorful dessert you’ll ever try…but some days also require chocolate!
This simple, decadent treat brings you the best of both worlds: juicy fresh fruit and dark creamy chocolate.
With the overabundance of fresh figs, coming from my in-laws backyard, I’ve had to get creative on how to serve up a platter of fresh figs. Dipping them in some dark chocolate did the trick! The family devoured these wholesome candies so quickly I barely got my hands on one!
If you don’t have access to fresh, organic figs then branch out and use another fruit. It all tastes good with a little dark chocolate
3 ounces dark chocolate, 72% cocoa
2 tablespoons coconut oil
18 Figs, fresh and ripe
Place the chocolate and coconut oil in a small saucepan and place in a skillet with an inch of water. Heat over medium, stirring often until smooth. Remove from heat and cool to room temperature.
Wash the figs and cut off the tough stems. Prepare a large plate or tray by covering with parchment paper. Dip the figs in the chocolate and place on the prepared plate. Chill in the fridge for 10 minutes.
Dip a fork into the remaining melted chocolate and make drizzle lines across the chocolate covered figs. Return to the fridge to harden. Eat within a day or two. Enjoy!
