 ------------------------------FIG SUGAR PLUMS------------------------------
  
   With your hands, pull California dried figs gently into their original
   shape, smoothing out wrinkles and perking up stems.  With a sharp, small
   knife, slit the smoothest side of the figs.  Stuff them plump and full
   with any of the following goodies:
   
   * half of mint or wintergreen cream patties
   * half of chocolate covered mint patties
   * salted nuts
   * toasted walnut meats
   * marshmallow, slit, with piece of chocolate tucked into it
   * wedge of candied ginger
   * ground nuts mixed with honey
   * fondant
   * ground or chopped salted peanuts mixed with peanut butter
   * blanched almonds, dried slowly in oven
   * candied cherry
   * chunk of candied pineapple
   
   Arrange these good-to-eat and good-to-look-at figs on pretty tray.  Place
   candle into a stem-clipped fig, which will serve happily as candle stick.
   Conversation piece -- and piŠce de resistance!
