Quiet and uncomplicated these chocolate dipped pears are holiday perfect for easy elegance. I added the salted almond coating for texture and to strike a sweet and salty note to the ensemble.
I know what the heck, right? It’s the beginning of the week and I’m opening with something on the quiet side? Glutton-free doesn’t happen here often, but today it does.
There so much going on lately, then on Friday life hit a crappy bump. Every thing has been sideways since, but I’m nearing the end and hopeful that all things will settle where they should.
Now for a non-sequitar. . .
Enjoy this modest dessert because I’ll be back to our regularly scheduled glutton cravings on Tuesday. If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram than you saw the tease. If not, let me say it’s a mercy killer – so get your eating pants ready.
