Chocolate Orange Dipped Figs

In all honesty, I’m a little reluctant to call this a recipe…

Actually, it’s not really a recipe at all (can you call chocolate-dipped anything a recipe?)

However, the combination of flavours is just so delicious that I had to share them with you, too! If you have yet to try chocolate, orange and figs together, then prepare to fall in love!

These Chocolate-Orange Dipped Figs are perfect for enjoying right now, when figs are at their plumpest and juiciest. They also make a great, healthy snack (no sugar added!) and are good for kids, too.
