Gourmet Pears with their Melting Chocolate Heart

Gourmet Pears with their Melting Chocolate Heart

This easy dessert is ready in less than 30 minutes. Include these in your holiday buffet and wow your guests.
  • One pear creates two servings
  • Rinse the pears and dry with a kitchen towel. Cut them in half lengthwise and scoop out the seeds. A melon baller works great here.
  • Roll out a sheet of puff pastry. Depending on the size of your pears you should be able to get 4-5 halves per sheet. I use ready-rolled puff pastry. It is pretty handy and saves time
  • Fill the pears with something chocolate and place them onto the pastry sheets. Make sure there is enough space in between them. Cut out the pears using a knife, leaving about a half inch of pastry around the fruit. Save the extra for the ‘leaves’.
  • Suggested: Lindor Chocolate Truffle
  • Chocolate Christmas Ball
  • Piece of Chocolate Covered Fruit from the Fruit Company
  • Nutella

  • Arrange the pears on the baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone mat.
  • Attach “leaves” cut out from the leftover puff pastry.
  • Slice the pears lengthwise and brush on a bit of lemon juice. Sprinkle with icing sugar
  • Brush the exposed pastry with beaten egg yolk and bake for 10-15 minutes, until pastry is a golden brown.
