Chocolate Fig Delights

These chocolate fig delights are the perfect afternoon snack that hits your sweet tooth!


These delights are the perfect healthy alternative when it comes to snacking on something sweet. They are super easy to make only consisting of 7 ingredients. When making these, I would suggest using dried figs over fresh figs...why? Because dried figs provides that stickiness to help the ingredients stick together, along with increasing the sweetness.


If you don't enjoy honey, you can easily swap the honey for maple syrup with a ratio being a little less than 1/4 cup, since maple syrup is runnier than honey.


Using dark chocolate is also a great way to increase the antioxidant content of these delights and also pairs perfectly with the sweetness of the figs.
