EwE - Fig & Ginger Truffles - Gotta have ... CHOCOLATE!

It is our last Eating with Ellie theme for the year, and Margaret chose Gotta have Chocolate!  

Me, I adore chocolate, so the hardest part for me was choosing what to make.  Ellie does have quite a few recipes involving chocolate, and I chose her Fig & Ginger Truffles - dried figs, crystallised ginger, honey and cinnamon, blitzed and rolled into balls, then coated with dark chocolate.  

These were quite yummy - better after they had been chilled for a day.  Are they greater than their parts?  Not really.  But they are nice, if you like the main ingredients.

To see what the others made this week, seethe LYL section of the EwE website.

I saw Ellie make these on her TV show. They looked good. Now I am beginning to hit holiday sweet burn out.
