Chocolate dipped figs with orange and almond

Ingredients 4
Servings 12
Time 35 min


  • 200
    dried Turkish figs
  • 2
    flaked almonds, roughly chopped
  • zest strips of 1 orange
  • 200
    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.
