My warning to you is the same I gave to my co-workers today — only try these if you really love figs and ginger, because the flavor is strong. The So Easy giveaways on my blog may be over, but there are still a lot of cool recipes I made from the book to talk about, like these Fig and Ginger Truffles.
If you have a food processor, the recipe is insanely easy. Blend up some dried figs, crystallized ginger, a bit of honey, and a little cinnamon. Then you just make little balls out of the mixture and roll them around in melted dark chocolate. (Yes, I’m sure you can use other types of chocolate, but the dark tasted right to me.)
They look really cool on the inside, so I had to take this photo. And like I said, these are intensely flavored, so you’re not gonna sit down and eat the whole tray yourself. I think they’d make a nice surprise treat with tea after a holiday dinner, and they’re “so easy” to prepare, you can even make a double batch for people to take some home.
