Why You'll Love This Recipe

Ripe figs have a wonderfully sweet, fruity, and floral flavor that pairs perfectly with a slightly bitter dark chocolate. Top this with a pinch of sea salt and you have a surprisingly complex flavor profile in a simple dessert.

You can make this recipe in just a few minutes and it's quite easy! It does take some time for the chocolate to set, but make them in advance of a party or dinner and you'll have a delicious treat to enjoy.

Ingredients You'll Need

For this recipe, you'll need 10 ripe figs, 1/2 cup of dark chocolate chunks or chips, and a 1/2 teaspoon of pink Himalayan sea salt or another flaky sea salt.

When choosing good figs, look for ones that are soft but not mushy. They should have a firm stem and be without bruises.

Tips for Making this Recipe

Recommended Tools - I highly recommend allowing your figs to dry on parchment paper. Anytime I melt chocolate, I allow it to dry on parchment paper because it's so easy to peel off.

Storing Tips - You can store these figs for up to three days in the refrigerator, but they are best fresh.
