Method

  1. Place the chopped dates and figs into a heat- proof bowl and pour over freshly boiled water. Leave to soften for 15 minutes.Meanwhile, pre- heat the oven to 180ºc and line a brownie pan with baking paper.
  2. Drain the fruit through a sieve to remove the excess water. Place the dates and figs in a food processor with the melted butter and eggs and process until creamy.
  3. Add the remaining ingredients, except for 1/2 cup of chocolate, and pulse to bring the mixture together.
  4. Pour the mixture into the prepared pan and press the mixture down firmly using the back of a spoon or your hands.
  5. Bake for 15- 20 minutes or until golden. Remove from the oven and leave to cool slightly in the pan. Once cooled but still warm, cut the slice into squares.
  6. To make the chocolate drizzle, place a small saucepanof water over a medium heat and bring to a gentle simmer. Place the remaining 1/2 cup of milk chocolate bits into a bowl to fit the top of the saucepan and gently melt the chocolate over the simmering water.
  7. Once the chocolate is melted, use a fork to drizzle it over top of the slice.
  8. Once the chocolate has set, store the slice in an air- tight container in the fridge for 4- 5 days.
