California Fig Lollipops

Instead of candy, eat fruit, but not just any fruit. You'll love this fig candy substitute of California Fig Lollipops. They're fun to make and tasty to eat.
Servings 12 lollipops


  • 12 4" bamboo skewers



  • With scissors or sharp knife, cut off fig stems and discard. Flatten each fig with palm of hand. Place one fig on each skewer to look like a lollipop. Place oranges in small bowls to hold lollipops while chocolate cools. Microwave morsels in microwave-safe bowl on MEDIUM (50%) power for 1 to 2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds, until melted and smooth. Dip skewered figs, partially or completely, into melted chocolate. Sprinkle each with a pinch of salt, finely chopped nuts or sugar sprinkles, as desired. Poke skewers in oranges. Chill until set.
