Figgy Brownies

Fig Brownies

You can probably tell by now that I like brownies. I’m pretty sure I haven’t met a brownie that I didn’t like. Now there are those that stand out amongst the others naturally. Figgy Brownies are one of those brownies. I was tickled when I received a few jars of Dalmatia Fig Spread to try out. They had a recipe in the enclosed booklet for these figgy brownies and I knew straight away that’s what I would be trying. I’m so glad I did. They’re the right amount of chocolate with a chewy center that oozes with fig spread.
