  • 12 large toothpicks
  • 12 dried figs
  • 4 ounces fresh goat cheese

  1. Line a baking sheet with waxed paper and grease the paper; set aside.
  2. Insert a toothpick into each fig. Make a 1/2-in. cut on the side of each fig. Combine the cheese, honey and vinegar in a small bowl. Transfer to a heavy-duty resealable plastic bag; cut a small hole in a corner of bag. Pipe cheese mixture into figs.
  3. Melt caramels and water in a microwave; stir until smooth. Dip each fig into caramel; turn to coat. Place on prepared pan; let stand until set.
