Fig Brownies with Brown Sugar Whipped Cream.
My love affair with Ficoco sent me on a google search for fig and chocolate recipes. My search yielded two noteworthy results.
1) God Hates Figs. (a spoof website ala godhatesshrimp.com)
2) A Double Chocolate Fig Slice Recipe.
Instead of soaking the figs in marsala, I soaked them overnight in dark rum (an -excellent- decision.) The resulting brownies were fudgy, adult, and richly studded with chunks of fig. I chopped the fruit pretty coarsely and used valrhona cocoa powder and 60% callebaut.
I used an 8" square pan, but I think a 9" might have been better as my brownies ended up too-underbaked in the very center. I'd love to eat them with some coffee ice cream next time!
