Equipment

  • double boiler

Ingredients

  • 13 whole Black Mission Figs
  • 3 tbsp raw cacao or cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil unrefined
  • 2 ½ tbsp hemp seeds
  • 3 drops liquid stevia I love Nu Naturals

Instructions

  • Wash the figs.  Dry the figs.  And halve the figs.  Then freeze the figs while you prepare the chocolate and hemp seeds.
  • Set up a baking tray lined with parchment paper.  Then add the hemp seeds to a small bowl (for dipping) and set aside.
  • Set up your double boiler to medium/low heat and add the coconut oil and the liquid stevia. Mix well.  Then add the cacao powder or cocoa powder and keep stirring until you have an even smooth mixture of chocolate.  Mix really, really well until smooth.
  • Lower the heat to the lowest temperature and one by one dip each fig halve into the chocolate mixture, followed quickly by dipping that fig in the hemp seed mixture and then laying the fig on the parchment paper-lined baking tray.  
  • Do not worry about it not being perfect, or not drying correctly, because it will.  Do this process with all the figs.  Once all figs are used up, put the tray in the freezer and let the figs set for 15 minutes.  Once set, add the figs to a plastic bag, or glass container and store in the freezer until ready to serve. These figs are delicious frozen and at room temp!

Notes

If the chocolate mixture starts to get lumpy, simply add a teaspoon of coconut oil into the mixture and stir out the lumps. // Letting you know that Hershey's chocolate powder is certified gluten-free in case you don't like cocoa or cacao. //
