Ingredients
  • 8 ounces semisweet or bittersweet chocolate, roughly chopped
  • 8 fresh black Mission figs
  • 8 3 -inch pieces black licorice laces
  • 16 sliced almonds
  • 16 orange sprinkles
Directions
  • Put the chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl; microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring, until melted. Let cool slightly.

  • Dip the figs in the melted chocolate, turning to cover completely; lift out with a fork and transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Use the remaining melted chocolate to attach a licorice piece to the rounded end of each fig for the tail.

  • While the chocolate is still soft, stick 2 sliced almonds on the pointy end of each fig for ears, then add 2 orange sprinkles for eyes. Refrigerate until serving, at least 20 minutes.
