Our riff on the popular finger food devils on horseback swaps out the traditional prunes and bacon for dried figs and prosciutto and ups the ante with goat cheese. Cut into hearts, the no-cook appetizer works equally well for Halloween as it does for Valentine's Day.


  • 18 dried figs

  • 3 ounces soft goat cheese, such as Vermont Creamery

  • 6 slices thinly sliced prosciutto, each cut into thirds

  • Balsamic vinegar, for drizzling


  1. Using a paring knife, slice a small pocket in rounded end of a fig. Stuff pocket with a scant teaspoon of cheese; press down to form a heart shape. Wrap with a third of a prosciutto slice; secure with a cocktail pick. Repeat with remaining figs. Drizzle lightly with balsamic vinegar; serve. Wrapped figs may be refrigerated, covered in plastic wrap, up to 8 hours; bring to room temperature before serving.
