Fig & Walnut White Chocolates

eastside december

If you happen to be in a quandary over what to make for the holidays that is both delectable and wholesome, this recipe might be just your gem. It has all the elements of festive texture, creaminess, crunch, a hint of spice, and chew–all lightly sweetened–enough to taste like a luxurious dessert bite and not so much you feel sick with the excess of sweetness. Homemade, honey-sweetened white chocolate, toasted walnuts, organic Black Mission figs enhanced with nutmeg whispers and pervasive with vanilla bean, all in a tidy, mouth-sized bundle of easily-created deliciousness. Even though white chocolate made from home tends to be a tricky creature, I think this method allows for confidence on the part of a home-cook, made simply with the help of a trusty thermometer.   You can find the step by step photos and instructions over at the Nourishing Gourmet site which is currently overflowing with a bounty of exciting and delicious holiday treats!
