V-Day Vegan Recipe: Dark Chocolate Pears with Almond or Hazelnut Crunch

Did I just cause your mind to explode a little bit? I certainly hope so. There's caramel apples, candied strawberries - certainly we've got room for some chocolate dipped Bosc pears in our lives too, right? This recipe is loosely based around gourmet food retailer Harry & David's similar chocolate-dipped pear gift set. But why not achieve that same level of decadence in our very own kitchen? Your Valentine would certainly admire the extra effort! -------------------------------------------- Dark Chocolate Pears with Almond & Hazelnut Crunch 5 ripe Bosc pears (or red Barletts for something very V-Day) 1 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips 1 cup toasted hazelnuts, chopped (or salted almonds, chopped) 1. Pour the nuts in a dry skillet. Toast them over medium-high heat for several minutes, tossing occasionally to prevent burning. Set aside to cool. Once the nuts are cool run your knife over them to roughly chop or use a food processor pulsing until you've reached your desired consistency. 2. Over a double broiler melt dark chocolate, or in a microwave using 30 second intervals, stirring in between. 3. Dip bottom third of each pear in dark chocolate, followed by chopped nuts. Place on parchment lined baking sheet. Repeat these steps with each pear until finished. Place in refrigerator for 30 minutes to set chocolate.

I followed your V-day collection SO FAST
I like the idea of using the redder pears for V-Day :)
These look way fancier than anything I'd normally make! I'll need to film myself making them or else people will accuse me of buying them :)
The almond crunch sounds amazing! I love anything dipped in chocolate, really hahaha
Pair this (no pun intended) with some choco strawberries as well and I am happy!

Caramel Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies
These look simply incredible. Two of my favorite things, chocolate chip cookies and caramel, combined into one heavenly cookie creation. I was looking for more caramel recipes (because that's what I do in my spare time, duh) when I found this recipe from Table for Two. I mean, can you even imagine anything more perfect?!? Look at that gooey, warm caramel. Those molten chocolate chunks. That perfectly chewy cookie. Imagine how good these are fresh out of the oven. Caramel Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies Prep Time: 10 min. Cook Time: 13 min. Difficulty: Easy Recipe adapted from Table for Two Ingredients 3 sticks (1ยฝ cup) unsalted butter, softened 1ยฝ cup dark brown sugar, packed ยฝ cup granulated sugar 2 eggs 4 tsp. vanilla extract 2 cups all-purpose flour 2 cups bread flour (you may use all-purpose flour instead if you don't have it on hand) 4 tsp. cornstarch 2 tsp. baking soda 1 tsp. salt 1ยฝ cups chocolate chunks ยฝ cup dark chocolate, finely chopped 18 caramel candies, cut in half to give you 36 Directions 1. Preheat oven to 350ยฐF. Line baking sheets with parchment paper. In a large bowl, whisk together the flours, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt. In another mixing bowl, cream together butter and sugar until fluffy (about 2 mins). Add eggs and vanilla. Beat 2 more mins. 2. Gradually add flour mixture, beating until fully incorporated. Fold in chocolate chips with a spatula. To form the cookies, take a spoonful of dough, and use your thumb to make a small hole and press the caramel into the center. Re-roll the ball to cover the caramel candy. 3. Bake for 11-13 minutes. They may look quite soft at this point, but remember they will continue to cook after you remove them from the oven. Allow them to cool completely on baking sheet, or else they'll break and caramel will ooze everywhere. Enjoy, my fellow cookie monsters!! This one's for @JPBenedetto โ€“ maybe you could find a way to work in some oatmeal here, for a little extra chew? :D <3 @Luci546 @MooshieBay @InPlainSight You guys might like this one as well :)
