Classic recipe of the rural tradition of the Marche, made with dried figs after the harvest in late September, mixed with other ingredients such as almonds, walnuts, rum and anise, to form a dough that is wrapped in chocolate as pralines. The orginal dessert is the result of local tradition, when in the Marche countryside, particularly in Vallesina, figs were cultivated in abundance, often maturing at the same time, just before the harvest, they had to be collected and stored to last through the winter. It is an idea of Cioccolateria Mencarelli to propose this praline.
