walnut stuffed figs

we really didn't eat a lot of desserts
when i was a kid
usually
after dinner
a pot of coffee was brewed
and 
bowls of
fresh fruit
and
nuts
were heaved to the table
one particular treat
at holiday time
was
freshly cracked walnuts
stuffed into
dried figs

this year
i gave the treat a little update
by dipping the figs
in 
bittersweet chocolate
a sweet
with 
benefits
walnut stuffed figs
12 dried figs
12 large walnut halves-toasted


warmed honey and flavorful cheese
or
bittersweet chocolate-melted and tempered

using a sharp knife, make a split in the fig without cutting all the way through
like this
push a walnut into the fruit
like so
and close it up
leave as it, 
drizzle with honey and serve with cheese as a savory snack
or
dip in chocolate for a great sweet
