TOP PICK OF THE WEEK: John & Kira’s Chocolate Fig Confections

Chocolate Pumpkins - John & Kira’s
Little figs filled, with clove ganache and enrobed in chocolate.
  Halloween is just days away. While there may be some who hanker for the miniature candy bars of youth, we have a much better recommendation. One of the delights we look forward to each fall is a box of chocolate-covered figs from John & Kira’s, one of our favorite artisan chocolatiers. John & Kira’s makes two variations of these confections, using sweet, fragile calabacita figs from Spain. The Fig Pumpkins, are dipped in a thin layer of white chocolate and tinted a perfect shade of pumpkin. They’re a seasonal special, but Dark Chocolate Figs are available year-round. The Fig Pumpkins are filled with a delectable whiskey clove ganache, the Dark Chocolate Figs with a pure dark chocolate ganache.
We flip for these little figgies. Putting one at each place setting at Halloween or Thanksgiving, serving them with after-dinner coffee or bringing a box to your host(ess) is certain to delight. And don’t forget to send a box to that bewitching someone special. Read the full review.
