Fresh Fig Chocolate Candy Bar

Hello there! You have arrived to Day 2 of Fig Fun Week! And today I've got some chocolate for you!

A while ago I saw how Lisa dipped some fresh figs in chocolate and I loved that idea so much that I decided to do the same thing! Well, not exactly...

Last week I got that chocolate candy bar mold from the picture and I really really had to use it. You know the felling when you have a new toy, right? I'm not the only one like that, am I?

You know what? Fresh figs and dark chocolate are gooooooood! But again, can you please tell me what's not good with chocolate?! What did you say? Shoes? Oh well, you can allways just lick the chocolate and leave the shoe! Can you please ignore that, I must be high on chocolate...

Anyway, you've gotta love a recipe with just 2 ingredients! Even if you don't have a chocolate candy bar mold, you can do as Lisa did or do bonbons with small paper cups, as you would do if you were to make peanut butter cups. You don't wanna bother? Just get a chocolate bar and some fresh figs, eat them together and you'll be done!

Me, I've put dark chocolate on the bottom and sides of the mold, let the chocolate set, filled with fresh figs mashed with a fork and then covered the all thing with chocolate. My mold is quite thin, so there's not a lot of fig filling but it was still very good. I think next time I'll do molded bonbons. The good thing is that figs don't oxidIZE, so they keep that gorgeous pink color inside the dark chocolate. I like that!

Go on, open your mouth! Carefull don't bite my fingers!

Meeta from What's for lunch honey? is hosting the Monthly Mingle August 2008: Fruit & Chocolate, so I'm sending this her way.

Too much chocolate today! Something lighter tomorrow, ok?

I have to admit I've never had a fig before, raw, cooked or otherwise. Your bars make me wonder if I've been missing out on something really, really good.

[eatingclub] vancouver || js said...

I'm having vicarious fun with figs here, which is just super.

I just noticed that fig flesh looks very much like pig flesh. See how much fun I'm having?

The chocolate bar looks amazing. You astound me!

By the way, I also loved the spiced cookie dough figs. Genius.

morgana said...

¡Ya tengo el verde perfecto! El de la cara que se me ha puesto cuando he visto ese pedazo de molde para hacer tabletas de chocolate rellenas de lo que se te pase por la cabeza. ¡¡¡ Qué divertido !!!

Y bueno, las fotos de la pulpa de higo semitransparente desbordando el chocolate... Arrrrrrrrhg. Casi me da algo.

Vas a acabar con los dedos llenos de dentelladas. Mira que somos muchos y esto tiene una pinta irresistible... ;-)

I also think you are "figtastic"! (Thank you for this new and amazing word, Adam)

morgana said...

Por cierto, dímelo bajito para que no se entere nadie... ¿dónde se puede comprar ese estupendo molde para tabletas de chocolate?
