Spain produces a flavoursome, thin skinned variety of fig called Pajarero which is the perfect medium to carry the rich, moist flavours of this chocolate coated fruit. Stuffed with a ganache of cream, chocolate and brandy, the Rabitos are intensely flavoured, slightly chewy, and meltingly delicious. Each collection set comes with 8 pieces of the best dried figs stuffed with white chocolate truffle with a hint of Marc de Cava.
Rabitos Royale Chocolate Liqueur Figs – delicious chocolate figs are made in Extremadura in the Southwest of Spain.
Raquel and Señador Valero conceived of this extraordinary treat, while living among the fig trees of a small village in southwestern Spain. They select tender young figs from the neighboring groves and fill them with a mousse made of dark chocolate and a hint of brandy. Each one is then hand dipped in even more rich dark chocolate! Finally each individual Rabito Bonbon is sealed in a foil envelope so that it will always taste as fresh as the day they were made. Winner of Best Confection in Show at the New York Fancy Food show.
Store your chocolates in a cool, dark place, ideally between 18 to 24°C. You can use the refrigerator, but place the chocolate in an airtight container to keep the moisture and humidity out—and retain its full range of flavors, of course!
