Original recipe makes 6 servings/ serving size 1 fig


6 fresh figs
2 tablespoons mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup blanched slivered almonds
1/2 fluid ounce orange liqueur


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Cut each fig in half. (If you cannot find fresh figs and would like to use dried figs, cut a little opening in the top of the fig and make a pocket for the stuffing.)
  3. In a small mixing bowl, combine chocolate chips, almonds, and wine. Spoon about 2 teaspoons of the stuffing mixture into each fig half.
  4. Bake on a cookie sheet for 10 minutes.
