Fresh Figs in Nightgowns

Source: Desserts 1-2-3 by Rozanne Gold

Serves 4.

12 large ripe purple figs
1 cup Nutella
1 1/2 cups plain yogurt

Wash figs and pat dry. Set aside.

Put Nutella in a warm place so it is easy to spoon. Or place the jar in a bowl of very hot water. Spoon Nutella into a clean, dry bowl. Whisk in 1 cup yogurt until completely smooth.

One by one, dip each fig into the mixture, holding it by its stem. Cover each fig completely or almost completely with a thin coating. Place on a large plate lined with wax paper. Refrigerate until very cold.

Serve a few tablespoons of plain yogurt alongside. This looks great presented on fresh fig, grape, or lemon leaves. Serve immediately with a fork and a knife.

NOTE: If you don’t feel like dipping the figs, you can serve them whole with a ramekin of the sauce on the side, or cut the figs in half lengthwise and generously drizzle with the sauce.
