Chocolate Covered Fig Bars

Fresh figs may be in season, but dried figs are available year round and because they lack moisture, I prefer baking with them. Β I like using fruit (like figs, bananas and dates) as a natural sweetener for desserts and baked goods as supposed to any other sugar. Β Fruit really is natures candy!
