How to Eat a Ganache Filled Fig
This is important.
A ganache filled fig is just about one of the most decadent (but not overly sweet) confections that I you'll ever try.
There are just a couple of things that you need to watch for if you are not experienced with chocolate filled figs.
First, take note of the stem...
Do not pop the whole thing in your mouth at once. Instead, firmly hold the little woody end of the fig and bite the rest of the fig off. You can do it in one big bite, just don't become overly exited and eat the woody end. Take your time and savor the experience.
Second, watch for falling chocolate...
If you prefer what you think might be the dainty two bite method of eating the chocolate filled AND chocolate covered fig, be sure to cup your non fig holding hand under the fig while you bite to catch the bits of chocolate that fall as the chocolate exterior cracks. The exterior doesn't always crack and fall off however the potential is there. You don't want to lose one bit of dark, decadent chocolate.
