Every year, my family takes turns hosting holiday dinners.  It’s a fun way for us to get together often without one person handling all of the prep work.

Initially, my holiday meal was Christmas Eve.  But, once my son was old enough to grasp the concept of Santa, I ended up trading.  It was just too hard to have everyone over and then get him to bed on time.

So I ended up trading holidays with my Aunt Tina and Uncle Carmen.  They had Thanksgiving which was perfect for me.

Christmas Eve turned into a big Italian-inspired dinner.  My dad and brother would do their interpretation of the Feast of the Seven Fishes.  I would bring homemade ravioli that my mom and I would make and my cousin Donna would bring her famous antipasta platter.

Every year, my Uncle Carmen would make these Figs with Walnuts and Honey.  He told me it was something his mother would always make when he was little.

I just love them!  They are sweet with a nice little crunch from the walnut.

After my Aunt Tina passed away, Uncle Carmen moved to Florida.  Sadly, we aren’t able to get together for Christmas Eve any more.

It’s funny how certain recipes can conjure up fond memories of good times.  When I discovered Don Victor honey, I knew I had to make these Figs with Walnuts and Honey to remember those special dinners.

The flavor of Don Victor honey is incredible.  It’s rich and sweet and you can almost taste the blossoms that the nectar came from.  I also loved how it comes with the honeycomb in the jar!

You can find Don Victor honey at Walmart in the International aisle — near the Hispanic section.

In addition to honey, Don Victor also makes these incredible honey spreads with chocolate, cinnamon and caramel!  I can’t wait to try them!

These Figs with Walnuts and Honey are one of those easy cold appetizer recipes that you can assemble ahead of time and drizzle with honey just before the guests arrive.

Of course they remind me of Christmas, but they can be served anytime of the year — either as an appetizer or a snack.
