An amazing dessert! You can use figs or dates in this recipe, and you can replace the orange liqueur with Marsala wine if you prefer. Preparation Time: 15 minutes. This recipe is from The WEBB Cooks, articles and recipes by Robyn Webb, courtesy of the American Diabetes Association.
Original recipe makes 6 servings/ serving size 1 fig

2 tablespoons mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup blanched slivered almonds
1/2 fluid ounce orange liqueur
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
