Today was Day #5 of Chocolate and Fig Theme Week. It's been easy to find many combinations that work with these two foods.

Today's combination involved shaved Belgian chocolate over chopped figs and vanilla gelato*. The results were on the sweet side, but I enjoyed this cold dessert on a hot summer day. (Optional additions to this sundae: cinnamon, ginger liqueur, crumbled gluten-free ginger snaps, strawberries, almonds, etc.)

*Note: In the past, I've also made fig ice cream by blending vanilla ice cream (or gelato), dried figs and milk chocolate shavings, then re-freezing this mixture.
