Chocolate Dipped Pears

Chocolate Dipped Pears are Fun to Make and Delicious to Eat

Chocolate Dipped PearsPears have great health benefits and are a delicious source of Vitamin C.   Personally, I think pears are a pretty fruit and I simply could not resist dipping them in chocolate and serving them as an afternoon snack recently.

It only takes a few minutes to melt chocolate and slice a pear.   With very little effort, I was able to serve Chocolate Dipped Pears which made a delicious, healthy treat for my entire family.   It really made me wonder why I don’t buy pears more frequently along with my normal purchases of bananas and apples.

Easy Directions for Chocolate Dipped Pears

Step 1: Cover a cookie sheet with wax paper ~ The cookie sheet will make it easier to move your Chocolate Covered Pears.

Step 2: Melt Your Chocolate ~ If you use Saco Dolci Frutta, you can melt the chocolate in the microwave in their package container.   Melt the chocolate in the microwave for 2 minutes on medium and stir the chocolate until it is completely melted.   Other chocolates will need to be melted in a double boiler or a microwavable dish.

Step 3: Wash, Dry and Slice Your Pears

Step 4: Dip the Pears in the chocolate

Step 5: Set on wax paper to cool

Step 6: When you have dipped all of your pears in chocolate, serve or eat.
