Chocolate Fig Sauce & Shake

 I prefer dried figs to fresh figs. They are sweeter and my favorite among dried fruits. Made delicious brownies, which will be my next post. This chocolate fig sauce was perfect as topping for the brownie. Different from the usual flavors. The fig taste is dominant , it works well as sandwich spread, toppings for ice creams, cakes, muffins, cookies even. I made some yummy milkshake with the it, sauce becomes thicker after storing overnight in the fridge.

CHOCOLATE FIG SHAKE


Chocolate Fig Sauce & Shake 
Recipe by A Spoonful of Yumm 


Total Time : 25mins
Serves : 3
Cooking Level : Easy
Storage : 3-4 days in fridge

Ingredients ~
100gms Dried Figs (cut into pieces)
50gms Dark Chocolate at RT
8 tspns Sugar
2 Cups Water or more if required

Make It ! 
  • Heat 2 cups water for 5 minutes (high flame) . After it starts boiling , on low flame add the dried figs and sugar (4 tspns), keep stirring. Figs take 10-15 minutes to soften
  • Add water in between if the fig mix dries up. The water should be just enough, covering the figs
  • Figs will become soft and sticky, like a soft mass. Cool to RT
  • Add the cooled fig mix to a mixer and blend to form a puree
  • Pour the pureed figs back in the same wok, on low flame , add the dark chocolate to it and stir slowly so that the chocolate mixes well with the fig sauce. Add remaining 4 tspns sugar if required
  • Stir for 2-3 minutes to form a thick rich sauce
  • Drizzle over brownies, muffins and dig in !

Chocolate Fig Shake :

Add 2 tbspns of the chocolate fig sauce to 1 cup cold milk or 2-3 scoops vanilla ice cream. Blend in a mixer to form a thick yummy drink
