Chocolate chips, almonds and orange liqueur are stirred together and spooned into fresh fig halves and baked. So absolutely civilized.
INGREDIENTS (for 6 servings):
- 6 fresh figs
- 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).
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.)
In a small mixing bowl, combine chocolate chips, almonds, and wine. Spoon about 2 teaspoons of the stuffing mixture into each fig half.
Bake on a cookie sheet for 10 minutes.
