Chocolate Covered Figs with Chia Seeds

Chocolate Covered Figs with Chia Seeds

Ingredients

  • 16 oz fresh figs
  • 1 3.2 oz dark chocolate bar*, roughly chopped (*I used this bar by Chocolove, but you can pick any flavor of chocolate you’d like)
  • 1 tbs coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup chia seeds
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ginger powder
  • 1 tsp Nourish my Brain Blend 
  • Optional: Smokey finishing salt or Maldon flakey salt

How to make:

Using the Bain Marie method or a double boiler, melt your chocolate. Once slightly melted, add oil, kosher salt and spices and fold in gently. Continuously stir until chocolate is smooth and full melted. Remove from heat. Rinse your figs and cut in half, starting from the stem. Dip figs in melted chocolate, covering half or completely. Lay figs on a lined baking sheet and sprinkle with chia seeds. Repeat until all figs have been covered. Sprinkle a small amount of finishing salt on the figs if you’d like. I also added dried rose petals to some figs for a nice floral pop!

Place figs in fridge until chocolate has hardened. Figs will keep for 3 days in fridge.

P.S. If you have leftover chocolate, pour it onto a piece of wax paper, cover with flowers spices or salt and let set. See picture below for example!

Rosehips are the edible fruit of the deciduous rose. They are typically reddish-orange, although black and yellow kinds can be found as well. There are many varieties stemming from the multitude of species of roses that can be found all over the world. Historically, they have been used both as a source of food and as a medicine throughout many cultures for a wide variety of reasons, with the main uses having been for circulation, lotions, tonics, and purifications (both spiritually and physically).

"...As corny as it sounds, I don’t think anyone needs to look a certain way to be beautiful. I think beauty is all about being kind, self-aware, open, and being unapologetically yourself. There’s truly nothing more beautiful than someone who is so in tune with who they are, and so shamelessly themselves. That confidence is always so radiating, and something I’ve always admired. "
