The name of this recipe may be deceiving. Believe it or not, the secret to “caramel” is Soom Tahini! Can you say “guilt-free”?

Rachael from An Avocado A Day says that “[Soom Tahini] had the smoothest texture you could imagine, and even had a hint of sweetness without any added sugars. In fact, I found myself getting a little spoonful whenever a sweet craving hit! I should probably just go ahead and pick up their chocolate flavor for next time!”

  • 30 dried figs
  • ¾ cup dark or semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • Flaky sea salt for garnish (optional, but not really)
  1. Place 1 cup of chopped dates½ cup Soom Tahini1 tbsp coconut oil and a pinch of salt in a food processor. Blend until “caramel” is creamy and smooth.
  2. Using a small paring knife, cut a slit into the center of each fig. Stick your finger or the tip of a butter knife into the slit and wiggle it around to form a small well. Stuff it with as much caramel as it will take. Repeat with 30 dried figs.
  3. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Melt ¾ cup dark or semi-sweet chocolate chips over a double boiler or in the microwave, stopping to stir it every 15 seconds or so. Dip each fig into the chocolate then place on the parchment paper lined baking sheet. Sprinkle with salt. Refrigerate until chocolate is hardened, about 5 minutes, or until ready to eat.
