    Miss Fannie's Note:

    I found this in a Good Housekeeping magazine while on vacation at Edisto Beach, SC. This succulent dessert is low in calories, high in fiber, and is chocolate dipped. Luckily, my neighbor has a fig tree.

      I've been hunting for some fresh figs since I saw this recipe -- so glad that I remembered that I was looking for them, lol! I had a package of 8 figs, so I just tossed a bunch of Scharffen-Berger bittersweet squares in the chocolate pot. These are good with just the chocolate on them, but the sea salt is crucial if you want them to be truly fabulous. Such decadent little morsels, thanks for posting!

      OMG - these are wonderful! I love figs - just plain, thank you! - so I was a bit leery of putting anything on them. But the chocolate and sea salt put these over the top. I managed to snag just one that looked a bit messy, but the rest disappeared from the plate while I was still dipping. So, the pic will have to wait until I have another basket of figs and some "alone-time". LOL - more for me! Thanks for posting what will undoubtedly be my new obsession!!!

      Figs and chocolate....hmm. Fabulous! I never would have thought of doing this, and I am rarely blessed with figs from my tree because the birds usually get them first! But I managed to snag 3 little ones the birds had missed. The sea salt makes this really happen! Thanks for posting this sweet idea, Miss Fannie. I will use it whenever I am lucky enough to get my share of the figs! ZWT9
