  • Fillings (choose as many as you like):
    • Half of mint or wintergreen cream patties
    • Half of chocolate covered mint patties
    • Salted nuts
    • Toasted walnut meats
    • Marshmallow, slit, with piece of chocolate tucked into it
    • Wedge of candied ginger
    • Ground nuts mixed with honey
    • Fondant
    • Ground or chopped salted peanuts mixed with peanut butter
    • Blanched almonds, dried slowly in oven
    • Candied cherry
    • Chunk of candied pineapple


Instructions:

1. With your hands, pull California dried figs gently into their original shape, smoothing out wrinkles and perking up stems.
2. With a sharp, small knife, slit the smoothest side of the figs.
3. Stuff them plump and full with any of the goodies listed in the Fillings.
4. Arrange these good-to-eat and good-to-look-at figs on a pretty tray.
