Lakanto Chocolate Dipped Figs with Almonds

 

 

Ingredients:

1 1/4 C. Lakanto Plain Chocolate Bars (about 1 1/2 bars)
2/3 C. chopped unsalted toasted almonds
24 plump dried figs

Directions:

1. Line a large sheet tray with parchment paper

2. Place chopped almonds in a wide, shallow dish. 

3. Melt chocolate in a small pot over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until melted and smooth, about 5 minutes.

4. Once the chocolate is melted, hold a fig by the stem and carefully dip it into the chocolate, coating it about halfway up.

5.Shake off any excess chocolate and roll the bottom in almonds and transfer to the sheet tray. (If chocolate becomes too stiff, reheat it briefly over medium-low heat.)

6.Set figs aside in a cool spot until chocolate is set, about 2 hours. Alternately, chill the figs for about 20 minutes to allow the chocolate to harden, and then return them to room temperature.
