Figs in Nightgowns
12 large ripe purple figs
1 cup Nutella
1 1/2 cups plain yogurt
Wash figs and pat dry. Set aside.
Put Nutella in a warm place so it is easy to spoon. Or place the jar in a bowl
of very hot water. Spoon Nutella into a clean, dry bowl. Whisk in 1 cup yogurt until completely smooth.
Dip each fig into the mixture, holding it by its stem. Cover each fig completely or almost completely with a thin coating. Place on a large plate
lined with wax paper. Refrigerate until very cold. Serve a few tablespoons of plain yogurt alongside.
Or - serve them whole with a ramekin of the sauce on the side, cut the figs in half lengthwise and drizzle with the sauce.
