Raw Caramel Stuffed Dark Chocolate Figs

Raw Caramel Stuffed Dark Chocolate Figs


  • 1 cup dates, chopped
  • 1/2 cup tahini
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • Pinch of salt
  • 30 dried figs
  • 3/4 cup dark or semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • Flaky sea salt for garnish (optional, but not really)


  1. Place dates, tahini, coconut oil and a pinch of salt in a food processor. Blend until creamy and smooth.
  2. Using a small paring knife, cut a slit into the center of each fig. Stick your finger or the tip of a butter knife into the slit and wiggle it around to form a small well. Stuff it with as much caramel as it will take.
  3. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Melt the chocolate over a double boiler or in the microwave, stopping to stir it every 15 seconds or so.
  4. Dip each fig into the chocolate then place on the parchment paper lined baking sheet. Sprinkle with salt.
  5. Refrigerate until chocolate is hardened, about 5 minutes, or until ready to eat.
