ChocolateBet: September 23, 2012

What are ChocoHigos? Your first and only hint: "Higos" is the Spanish word for figs. And these little chocolate-covered beauties were produced in Valencia, Spain.

Dried Pajarero figs were hand-dipped in dark chocolate with a touch of vanilla. And they were very tasty. A nice complement to un cafecito, or a cup of coffee, as shown on the package.

These ChocoHigos were imported into the U.S. by Forever Cheese LLC (New York); and I bought them at the local Whole Foods grocery store.

Today was Day #2 of Chocolate, Figs and Coffee Theme Week. So, in honor of the number "2" I created a fig, coffee and chocolate tapas plate with some cheeses. (Thank you Katy and Trip for mentioning cheese.)

I roasted some figs with honey and coffee liqueur and cinnamon, ate them with a slice of Torrone a pani - with dark chocolate and almonds, and some cheeses. Died-and-gone-to-heaven-on-a-little-plate just about captured this moment.
