This is going to be a very short but sweet post. It’s Friday night, we’re watching television, and we’re wishing for something good to eat. The easy thing to do is brownies. But wait! We have fresh figs! So let’s just slice some figs in half, poke them into the top of the brownie batter and bake!
The brownies are done! Look at those yummy figs…soft, succulent and juicy! Roasted figs embedded in rich chocolate brownies. (Use one extra egg in your brownie batter to make them cake-like.) And yes, this is a boxed mix…Ghirardelli Triple Chocolate Chip…just happened to have some in the pantry!
Serve the brownies while they’re still warm and let the juice of the figs soak into the chocolate yumminess. Add a scoop of good vanilla ice cream topped with caramel sauce…then take a bite of fig, a bite of chocolate, with a vanilla ice cream chaser. How much better can a Friday night treat be?
Looking forward to Fig Fest 2013 ? I am! Join in the fun on Sept. 8, 2013!
