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

  1. Put the chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl; microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring, until melted. Let cool slightly.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
