  1. Place the chocolate squares in a microwave safe glass bowl.
  2. Cook for about 2 minutes, until completely melted.
  3. While chocolate is cooking, carefully cut through top half the dates and figs. Don’t cut all the way through the bottom.
  4. Remove pits from dates.
  5. Using a toothpick dip the cherries in the melted chocolate to coat fully.
  6. Place a chocolate cherry in each date or fig.
  7. Alternately drizzle melted chocolate into center of each date or fig.
