Christmas Candy: Fig Amaretto Balls


A simple but very tasty christmas treat!

Fig Amaretto Balls
makes about 60 small balls

200 g dried figs
60 g butter
160 g almond paste
50 ml amaretto liqueur
120 g breadcrumbs

dark chocolate

Cut the figs into smaller pieces, and remove the stalks. Place in a food processor with the butter, almond paste, amaretto and breadcrumbs. Process until you have a smooth paste. Shape into small, even balls and place them in the fridge for a while.

Melt the dark chocolate, dip and roll the balls so that they're evenly covered, and place on a piece of waxed paper to set. Keep at room temperature - and it keeps pretty well for a few days, at least.
