4 tablespoons wildflower honey

1 cup chopped dried figs

Directions

Honey and Nut Baked Figs with Marscapone

1. Preheat oven to 375F. Cut an x in the top of each of the figs, to open them up. Roast the nuts on a baking tray for 10 minutes until golden. Remove from oven, allow cool, roughly chop them, add to a mixing bowl. Stir in the honey and mix together well. Spoon the nut and honey mixture into the top of each fig. Place the stuffed fig into a baking dish. Bake for 10 minutes

2. In a small mixing bowl, cream the mascarpone cheese with the brown sugar, vanilla and orange. Divide the mascarpone onto dessert plates. Place the warm stuffed figs on top and garnish each plate with the chocolate bark.

Chocolate Fig Bark

1. Melt the 2 chocolates in a heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water. Meanwhile, line a sheet pan with parchment paper. Pour the melted chocolate over the paper and spread to form a rectangle. Sprinkle the nuts and figs over the chocolate. Set aside for 2 hours until firm. Cut the bark in 1 by 3-inch pieces and serve at room temperature.
