Stuffed Chocolate Figs

Yay! :-) Here's is my latest creative invention - stuffed chocolate figs smothered in dark chocolate! These are a fun, pop in your mouth dessert, with a delicious creamy filling! :-) They would be a great finger food for a party or special event.

Serves 10-20

20 dried organic figs
1 big bar of 70% dark organic chocolate

Approx 1 1/2 - 2 TBSP organic extra virgin coconut oil
3 TBSP honey
1 cup finely shredded dried coconut
3/4 cup almond meal
3 TBSP sifted carob powder
1 1/2 tsp vanilla essence

Melt chocolate in a double boiler over a saucepan of boiling water.

Mix together all the filling ingredients evenly. Shape into 20 balls.

Choose figs that are fairly soft - rather than tough skinned ones. Split the underside of the figs open - into half or thirds about 3/4 way up, and from inside the fig push out the creases with your fingers so there is more space inside. Make sure the top and stem remain intact. Fill each fig with a sweet ball and close the fig back over it.

Holding by the stem, dip each fig in the melted chocolate, coating it evenly. Place on a tray covered in waxed paper. When all are complete place in freezer for approx 10 mins to set the chocolate.

Offer with love and serve this delightful dessert! :-) Yummy!!!
