Figs dipped in dark chocolate with sea salt

It’s fig season! The tree in my garden has produced a bumper crop of figs so succulent and sweet that honey would be overkill. This has coincided with a heatwave, so I’m eating lots of fig salads, figs with yoghurt and orange zest rather than some of the bakes that I usually do. A friend of mine suggested that I just dip the figs in chocolate. Then we decided what would be even better would be if the chocolate was dark, bitter and with sea salt. So now we have the perfect sweet treat, something that is salty, bitter and very sweet and only takes a few minutes to make.

I can’t really call this a recipe because all you have to do is: cut the figs in quarters, melt the chocolate, (I used Lindt dark chocolate with sea salt), cover the figs with the melted chocolate and put them in the fridge to set.
