For a quick healthy snack, these flavors work so well together. This is so easy and quick, yet it makes you feel so fancy eating them. They also make great appetizers for a party, and with just 3 ingredients, you can whip them up in no time.
Fresh figs are in season from early summer and then again in late summer and through the fall. One of my favorite things about figs is the texture. I love the delicate crunch of the fig seeds combined with the softness of its flesh.
If you like, you can drizzle these with a bit of honey, but I feel that the figs are sweet enough. I love goat cheese, but my husband does not, so you can always replace the goat cheese in this recipe with another soft cheese. Try a little dollop of brie or camembert. If you are a chevre lover like myself, check out my Arugula, Cantaloupe and Goat Cheese salad recipe as well. You’ll love it!
The trick to wrapping these little jewels is really in the twist. You will want to place one end of the prosciutto on top of the cheese. This helps to secure it. Then wrap it around the underside and bring it up around to the top again. At the top, do a little twist with the prosciutto so that it creates a nice little curl, then tuck the end under the bottom to finish. Beautiful! And delicious!
Enjoy these at your next party, or simply do a make 2 or 3 for yourself. Go ahead. Spoil yourself. There is no reason why we must save something so easy for a special occasion! These also make a great light dessert! Have fun!
