Dried Figs Stuffed With Almonds, Coated In Dark Chocolate

This almond stuffed dried figs, coated in dark chocolate is cheap and easy to make snack or dessert that takes little time to prepare and uses just a few ingredients. I use my own sun-dried figs which I planted and grew myself from cuttings, but if you don’t have your own dried figs, you can get them in any supermarket. Just recently I started to use my own almonds too.


  • 12 dried figs
  • 12 almonds
  • 50g dark chocolate
  • 20ml milk
  • 1 tbsp of butter

Method of Preparation

Step 1: Choose 12 nicely dried figs. These are my figs that I chosen from the storage bag.

Step 2: Wash figs in warm water. I usually wash them changing water twice to make sure they are properly cleaned.

Step 3: Drain and dry in the colander. Prepare 12 almonds.

Step 4: Fill each fig with one almond. Use the small hole at the bottom of the fig fruit to insert the almond (as in below photo)

Step 5: Melt the chocolate mixed with butter and milk in a small saucepan – Place the chocolate, butter, and milk into a small saucepan. Try to use a deeper saucepan. It is much easier to dip figs inside than in the shallow one. Bring to the boil and then reduce the heat, mix and simmer for a minute until melted.

Step 6: Dip each fig in melted chocolate. Optional: Add a grain of sea salt on each fig

Step 7: Place dipped figs on the tray covered with baking paper. Put the tray in the fridge for about an hour.

Step 7 – After an hour in the fridge the coated figs are ready to serve
