On Valentine’s Day or any elegant event you may host; here’s a special appetizer or dessert that you’ll love! Fruit, caramel and rich dark chocolate add a sweet touch to this grown-up dipped fruit. If you cannot find Figs, you may substitute large strawberries.

What You Need:

(Makes: 1 dozen)

12 large toothpicks

12 fresh or dried figs

4 ounces of fresh goat cheese

1 teaspoon of honey

1 teaspoon of balsamic vinegar

1 package (11 ounces) of Kraft caramel bits

2 tablespoons of water

1/3 cup finely of chopped almonds

1 & 1/2 cups of dark chocolate chips, melted

Coarse sea salt

What to Do:

STEP 1) Line a baking sheet with waxed paper and grease the paper; set aside.

STEP 2) Insert a toothpick into each fig. Make a 1/2 inch cut on the side of each fig. Combine the cheese, honey and vinegar in a small bowl. Transfer to a heavy-duty resealable plastic bag; cut a small hole in a corner of bag. Pipe the cheese mixture into figs.

STEP 3) Melt the caramels and water in a microwave; stir until smooth. Dip each fig into caramel; turn to coat. Place on prepared pan; let stand until set.

STEP 4) Place the almonds in a small shallow bowl. Dip bottom third of each fig into melted chocolate; allow excess to drip off. Dip into almonds and sprinkle with salt. Return to pan; let stand until set.

STEP 5) Happy Valentine’s Day & Enjoy!
