Smear 16 fig halves with cheese. Put the second half on top to form a stuffed fig.
Wrap each fig in ½ slice prosciutto, being sure to cover the seam of cheese with the prosciutto. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
Combine the vinegar, honey and 1/8 teaspoon black pepper, in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, reduced the heat to low, cook 3 minutes.
