Combine the brandy, figs and cranberries in a medium microwave safe bowl. Microwave on HIGH (100%) for 2 minutes, then set aside for 1 hour.
Place the chocolate in a large bowl over a pan of simmering water; heat until melted. Remove the bowl from the pan, stir in golden syrup. Fold in the biscuits and pistachios, then fruit mixture.
Divide mixture between three sheets of baking paper and roll to form log or salami shapes. Refrigerate until set.
To present, unroll when firm. Roll in sifted icing sugar, then you could use the string as per Nigella recipe and or then re-wrap in cellophane. Tie ends of with decorative ribbon. I also made small gift tags on the computer, listing all the ingredients on one side and the To: From on the other.
