Recipe Ingredients

  • 6 fresh figs
  • 2 tablespoons mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • ¼ cup blanched slivered almonds
  • ½ fluid ounce orange liqueur

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  3. 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. 4 Bake on a cookie sheet for 10 minutes.
