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.
Chocolate Dip Pears with Almond Crunch
- 6 red Bartlett pears, medium size
- 8 oz. dark chocolate, melted
- 4-5 oz. salted almonds, chopped
Place melted chocolate in one bowl and the chopped almonds in a second bowl. Dip room temperature pears in chocolate then in almonds. Place dipped pears on a cooling rack to set.

Having just gotten back from Harry and David, I’m loving seeing these pears! And if a dessert is going to be gluten-free, I think you gotta do it right… and this is right. 😉

There is no denying the fact that purchasing a car can
be a nerve-wracking, stress-filled experience. Before you make a decision and spend a great amount of money on
a vehicle, it pays to acquire a bit of knowledge on the subject.
Keep the tips that follow close at hand, and you will have what it takes to make an optimal decision.
I am obessed with the picture alone..I will be making this..wonder if semi sweet chocolate will work?
Move over apple, there’s a new star in town! This stunning! I love pears and this looks stellar!
