Dark Chocolate coated Fig balls...

Sometimes we all need a bit of indulgence to accompany something totally healthy, so here is the perfect remedy!


Dark chocolate coated fig balls, combined with crystallised ginger and luxurious cinnamon bonded with honey.

You will need:

200g dried figs
50g crystallized ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon honey
80g dark chocolate

In a blender mix the dried figs, ginger honey and cinnamon

Melt the dark chocolate

Form small balls out of the blended mixture

Dip these into the melted chocolate (you can also dip some strawberries in at this point)

On a lined tray allow these to cool in the fridge this usually takes about 15 minutes

Serve with some natural yogurt and strawberries and layer with the left over chocolate sauce!

Add a chocolate dip strawberry to serve.

Remember dark chocolate is good for you in moderation I used Green and Blacks 80% coco and ginger and figs are also great for you especially when mixed with fresh fat free yogurt.

Duckey says Yummy!
