Dark Chocolate Fig Pops


3.5 oz. bar of dark organic (fair trade) cacao chocolate

12 large figs (green or mission figs)

Raw coconut flakes (optional)

In a large pot, bring water to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low.
Set a large glass bowl to rest atop the pot, with the bottom of the bowl partly touching the water.
Add the chocolate bar to the glass bowl. As chocolate begins to melt, stir with wooden spoon.
At the fig’s stem end, insert a 6-inch wooden skewer (pointed end up) half way inside each fig.
Dip each fig in the chocolate. Coat all sides by rolling the fig around evenly.
If you like coconut, once the chocolate is coated on the fig, roll the fig in raw coconut flakes.
Place each fig on wax paper to cool.
Place figs on wax paper in the refrigerator for 10 minutes.
Remove from refrigerator and enjoy!
