Ingredients

Chocolate Covered Pears

  • 4 ripe pears
  • 250 grams dark chocolate melts
  • 1 cup energy mix granola

Instructions

Chocolate Covered Pears

  • Place chocolate melts into a microwave safe container and heat for 1 minutes. Repeat in 30 second time segments using a spoon to stir each time in between. 
  • Hold pear over melted chocolate and dip leaving 1/4 of the pear skin visible at the top 
  • Hold pear by the stem and dip into granola mix, roll pear around until all sides are coated 
  • Place on baking paper lined tray into the fridge for 5-10 mins to set 
  • Serve chilled 

Notes

  • You can use dark chocolate, milk chocolate or white chocolate, whichever you prefer¬†
  • The longest part of this recipe is when the chocolate sets (in the fridge) , but even that won't take very long
  • It is easier to dip the pears into the chocolate and then granola using small round bowls¬†
  • Always hold pear by stem/top section to ensure chocolate is smooth with no finger marks
