Fig Orange Hazelnut Truffles: These truffles are fantastic to whip up in advance or just when needed. They take about 10 minutes to make. You can alter the nuts or dried fruit to what you have at hand. I just love figs at this time of the year, and they are full of nutrients. Combined with cinnamon and ginger, they are great for your digestive system too.
