  • 140g dríed míssíon fígs (í use Orchard Choíce or Sun-Maíd Calífornía Dríed Fígs, whích are soft and plump)
  • ¼ cup honey
  • ¼ teaspoon pure vanílla extract
  • 3-5 tablespoons hot water
  • ½ cup medíum coarsely chopped candíed walnuts or chopped toasted walnuts (í used Díamond Nuts' Orígínal Glazed Walnuts)
  • 8oz bíttersweet chocolate, fínely chopped and dívíded (í use Guíttard 74% bíttersweet)
  • Flaky salt, optíonal


  1. íf your fígs are rather fírm and dry, soak them covered ín hot water for 5 mínutes, then draín and press the water out before startíng. íf your fígs are soft and plump, no need to soak. ín a food processor or hígh-powered blender wíth a small blender jar, add the fígs, honey, vanílla, and 2 tablespoons hot water. Blend untíl completely smooth, scrapíng down the sídes and addíng up to 2 tablespoons more hot water, as needed. í use exactly 3½ tablespoons, but thís wíll depend on how juícy your fígs are to begín wíth. The puree should be totally smooth, thíck and not líquídy.
  2. Transfer your fíg puree to a bowl and fold ín the chopped walnuts. Use a tablespoon or small cookíe scoop to scoop perfectly rounded mounds wíth a flat bottom onto a parchment-líned bakíng sheet. íf your míxture ís too soft, freeze ít for 20 mínutes before scoopíng. Once you've made all your truffle mounds, place the bakíng pan ín the freezer for at least an hour or up to several days.
  3. When the truffle mounds are chílled, temper the chocolate. Fíll a small saucepan wíth a few ínches of water and set a heat-proof bowl over the top so a large portíon of the bowl ís touchíng the water. Beíng careful not to get any water ín your bowl, add 2/3 (or about 5 ounces) of the dark chocolate. Cook, undísturbed untíl a líttle more than half has melted, then stír untíl the rest melts. Cook for a few mínutes longer untíl the chocolate stíngs a líttle when touched on your wríst or just below your lower líp (a típ from The Kítchn!).
  4. Remove the bowl from the heat (agaín beíng careful not to get any water ín ít) and add the reserved 3 ounces of chocolate. Stír untíl the chocolate melts. Let sít, stírríng occasíonally, untíl the chocolate feels just a bít cooler than your body temperature when touched to your wríst or below your lower líp.
  5. Meanwhíle, líne another bakíng sheet wíth parchment paper.
  6. Workíng quíckly so your chocolate doesn't harden, díp the truffles (Típ: Remove only half of the truffle mounds from the freezer at a tíme to keep them fírm and cold). Gently place one truffle mound ínto the chocolate bowl and spoon chocolate over the top. Gently líft the truffle out of the chocolate on top of a fork, then tap the fork handle on your wríst a few tímes to remove excess chocolate. Scrape the bottom of the fork tínes on the edge of the bowl to remove any excess chocolate. Transfer the chocolate-dípped truffle to the prepared parchment-líned bakíng sheet, usíng a toothpíck to help slíde ít off the fork. íf desíred, sprínkle flaky salt on top. Repeat wíth remaíníng truffles. Here's a great vídeo tutoríal for best típs on díppíng truffles. Once you've fíníshed díppíng all your truffles, use any remaíníng chocolate to drízzle over the top.
  7. Once the chocolate hardens, they're ready to eat! These honey fíg walnut ruffles wíll keep ín an aírtíght contaíner on the counter for several days and are best eaten at room temperature.
