Fig and Nut Chocolate Bark
My stomach growled through two layers of jackets, as my eyes slowly moved to my bus seat companion today, which happened to be a box of rubber food models. It is pretty desperate hunger when rubber peas and fake pepperoni pizza make me hungry. I was excitedly re-routing said box from an office downtown to my office. You know you are a nutritionist when rubber replicas of chicken breast, applesauce and steak get your heart skipping a beat.
These bars were a perfect platform for recipe hunting. I dragged cookbooks and binders off the bookshelf to find a quick chocolate-like dessert to assemble over at her house. Thanks to a previously torn out page from Cooking Light, this recipe came to life.
The great benefit is that you are essentially creating your own chocolate bar. You get the opportunity to stuff the chocolate with little bits of whatever you like. I divided the macadamia nuts, hazelnuts and figs into different sections for variety. So then each bite will be a little different. The hardest part is waiting for it to work it's magic in the freezer.
