Author Notes: Turkish figs stuffed with orange and flaked almonds and then dipped in dark chocolate - a fabulous flavour combination! —Teresa Ulyate
Makes: approximately 12
grams dried Turkish figs
tablespoons flaked almonds, roughly chopped
zest strips of 1 orange
grams dark chocolate
- Use a sharp knife to slit the figs lengthways. Do not cut them all the way through as you want the top and bottom to remain attached.
- Push a large pinch of flaked almonds and three strands of orange zest into each fig. Gently press the top and bottom of the fig together.
- Melt the dark chocolate. Dip each fig in the chocolate and place on a piece of baking paper. Set the figs aside until the chocolate has set, then store in an airtight container.
