people, and they loved it.


1/2 cup pine nuts, toasted
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
2 tablespoons grated orange zest
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
10 fresh figs, washed, stems removed
1/4 cup chocolate chips
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon Grand Marnier (one reviewer used a little juice from the orange)
1 orange, sliced

1. In a small bowl, combine the cream cheese, cooled pine nuts, orange zest, nutmeg and pepper, mixing until smooth.

2. Slice each fig in half lengthwise.

3. Press about a tablespoon of the cream cheese mixture into the cut side of each fig half.

4. Melt chocolate and butter in micro 1 minute (or use double boiler); add Grand Marnier, stir till creamy.

5. Drizzle over stuffed figs.

6. Garnish on a platter with orange slices.


A balanced diet is equal parts of milk and dark chocolate.
