Have you had enough of peanut butter and chocolate? Me neither. While the chocolate is optional, the peanut butter is not. Perhaps this is a little late, but nothing brings in the fall like the end of fig season! If you can still find fresh figs at the store, you must give these a try. You can use a “regular” peanut butter or try a natural peanut butter with no sugar for a salty/sweet treat.


4 fresh figs
2 Tbsp peanut butter
1 Tbsp dark chocolate chips (optional)


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and place a piece of tinfoil on a baking sheet. Using a small serrated knife (like a steak knife), cut a small opening in the top of each fig and scoop out some of the insides (and eat it!). Then slice of a thin, flat piece of skin along the bottom so the figs can stand on their own. If you’re using chocolate chips, drop a few into each fig. Using a small spoon or knife, fill/stuff the figs with peanut butter until just overflowing. Place in the oven for 10-12 minutes, until hot and bubbly. Remove from the oven and slice in half. Serve while very warm.
