Delicious Spice Roasted Figs with Hazelnuts and Ice Cream

I recreated this Spice Roasted Figs with Hazelnuts and Vanilla Ice Cream by Chef Curtis Stone and his wife, Lindsay Price Stone.

Fig Hazelnut Ice Cream Ingredients

I have to admit, I had an interesting time trying to find the figs and hazelnuts for this recipe as they are seasonal ingredients. Figs are in season during June and August-October. I found out that the local and big chain stores only carry figs during these certain times of the year. I made this recipe in early August, so I had to get these two ingredients at a specialty grocery store.

I also had a great learning experience with this recipe. I could only find raw hazelnuts. So I learned how to blanch and toast them myself. If you need to know how to do this as well, learn how here.

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 8 ripe figs
  • 1 1/3 cups Vanilla Ice Cream
  • 1/4 cup blanched and toasted hazelnuts coarsely chopped


  • Position broiler rack 6 inches from heat source and preheat broiler. Line a large baking sheet with aluminum foil.

  • Halve your figs and place them cut side down into the spices.
  • Then coat figs a second time with sugar mixture and arrange cut side up on baking sheet.
  • Broil the figs for about 4 minutes. They spices should start to caramelize and the fig juices will start to ooze.
  • Divide figs among 4 bowls. Spoon the Breyers® Natural Vanilla Ice Cream into each bowl and sprinkle with hazelnuts.


Figs are best served warm with the ice cream.
