Servings 4 servings
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon each ground cinnamon and ground ginger
- 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
- 8 ripe figs halved lengthwise
- 1 1/3 cups Breyers® Natural Vanilla Ice Cream
- 1/4 cup blanched hazelnuts toasted, coarsely chopped
Position broiler rack 6 inches from heat source and preheat broiler. Line a large baking sheet with aluminum foil.
In a small bowl, mix sugar and spices. One at a time, dip figs, cut side down, in sugar mixture to coat. Then coat figs a second time with sugar mixture and arrange cut side up on baking sheet. Broil figs, watching closely, for about 4 minutes, or until sugar melts and begins to caramelize and figs soften slightly and begin to ooze their juice.
Divide figs among 4 bowls. Spoon 1/3 cup of Breyers® Natural Vanilla Ice Cream into each bowl and sprinkle with hazelnuts.
