We Should Cocoa – the December 2014 Challenge

We Should Cocoa | 1st December 2014 | By

Doesn’t time fly when you’re having fun? It seems that December and Christmas are with us again – already. Last year’s We Should Cocoa theme was alcohol, a case of festive spirits in all senses of the word. Talking of Christmas spirits, I do like my Christmas carols. So I’m wishing you a Merry Christmas and challenging you to make something chocolatey with figs – we all want our figgy pudding and you can bring them right here. Not that you need to limit your entries to puddings, figs are a delicious and versatile ingredient that can be used in all sorts of things. At least, I think they are. I leave it to you to prove it.

Entries via linky here until the 28th of the month as a little Christmas present from We Should Cocoa to you.

Thanks to Shaheen over at Allotment 2 Kitchen who hosted last month’s We Should Cocoa, red hot chilli. Do take a look if you haven’t yet seen it.

Thank you to all of you, readers, contributors and hosts alike. I look forward, as always to see what you come up with – festive figgy fun.

    Great theme. I love figs. They’re very festive. I always have a pack of dried figs somewhere in the cupboard too. Can’t wait!

    great theme esp as I tend to avoid figs but I love them when I use them and they are so christmassy – will have to put on my thinking cap (and consult my pinterest board)

    Actual fate; I had dried figs in my last food shop along with a weird tin of figs from Aldi. Good timing! Looking forward to this one!

    I’ve ordered some fresh figs in my shopping order, now to think how to combine them with chocolate!
