    4 Fresh Figs

    100g Walnuts

    125g 70% Dark Chocolate

    50g Salted Butter

    40g Cocoa Powder


    Wash the figs and remove the stalks. Chop figs into chunks. Put the walnuts and figs into a food processor and blitz until you have a coarse paste.

    Melt the chocolate and butter in a bowl over a pan of boiling water, making sure the bottom of the bowl doesn’t touch the water. Once melted, add the fig and walnut mix. Stir well to combine.

    Allow to cool, then refrigerate for a few hours until firm. Roll spoonfuls into balls about 15g each, then roll in the cocoa powder. Keep in the fridge until needed
