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.

From this recipe:

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!
