Chocolate-Dipped Fig Truffles
Inspired by an Ecuadorian confection called Dulce de Higos ('Sweet Figs') — a traditional dessert of preserved figs simmered in spices, candied, then served with soft local cheese such as queso fresco — Ashley chose tender, locally sourced black Mission figs as the foundation for a Dandelion version of the Ecuadorian delicacy. Each plump fig is hand-stuffed with creamy, spice-infused chocolate ganache, then hand-dipped in a generous layer of our 70% Camino Verde, Ecuador chocolate, and garnished with edible gold leaf. These California-grown Spanish figs, with their dark purplish skin and luscious honey flavor, are a variety similar to the Spanish figs enjoyed in Ecuador.

A Triumph of Flavor & Craft
Rich local cream is infused with organic, flavorful, single-origin spices, and is then gently hand-stirred into melted Camino Verde, Ecuador chocolate to form silky ganache. When the ganache is firm enough to scoop, it is gently stuffed by hand into the center of each juicy, dark-purple black Mission fig, and the whole fig is hand-dipped in more hand-tempered Camino Verde, Ecuador chocolate. Delicate gold leaf hand-placed near each stem provides a gleaming finishing touch.
