    Directions:

    1. 1
      Combine cream and chopped mint in saucepan, and bring to a boil, then quickly remove from heat, cover, and allow mint to steep for 5 minutes.
    2. 2
      Next, place chocolate in a bowl and set a strainer over it.
    3. 3
      When the cream has steeped, pour it through the strainer, pressing gently on the mint to extract all the cream.
    4. 4
      Discard mint.
    5. 5
      Gently stir cream-and-chocolate mixture until it is nice and smooth and chocolate is melted.
    6. 6
      Let cool just until the consistency of a thick sauce.
    7. 7
      Spoon about 2 tablespoons of sauce into 6 to 8 individual bowls.
    8. 8
      Scatter figs and raspberries over sauce.
    9. 9
      Drizzle remaining sauce over fruit.
    10. 10
      Sprinkle with toasted almonds, garnish with mint sprigs, and serve.
    11. 11
      Enjoy!
    12. 12
      Yield: 6 to 8 servings.
    13. 13
      Note: You can cool the ganache completely and rewarm it very gently in its pan, set over another pan of barely simmering water.
    14. 14
      Stuffed Fig Variation: Cut figs into halves instead of quarters. Cool the ganache to a soft, spreadable consistency. Spread a mound of the ganache on the cut surface of each fig and sprinkle with toasted almonds.

      This is fantastic!! It was so easy to make but so decadent! The mint grenache is delicious! I made this for a small dinner party and everyone loved it. Besides being delicious, this also looks beautiful. Great presentation. So fresh and inviting. I am making this again tonight! Made for the Bargain Basement tag game.
