Baked Fig Pops with Blue Cheese and Candied Almonds
"This is a different variation of my cheese tray in a bite — fruit, cheese, nuts in one mouthful — heaven. For slightly heartier fare, throw them on a thin crostini, pushing the figs down slightly so they don’t roll away onto your cocktail party neighbour’s fancy shoes! For a fabulous alternative, feel free to try sliced pears on a crostini instead of figs, as shown in this photo."
