Mmmmm surely have your attention now don’t I!

We bought a delicious box of pears and in my thinking about how best I can use them, this was an inspiration on a ‘dessert night’ with myself and the little boys. It is so remarkably simple. Let me know if there is anyone at all who leaves any on their plate! 😉

(Apologies for the dreadful photo. It’s very difficult to make a baked squishy wrinkly pear look good in night time light, no matter how great it tastes!)

Ingredients (for 2 people):

2 ripe pears, cored

4 medjool dates, soaked for 10 minutes in boiling water

2 tsp almond spread (I use 100% almonds so feel free to just blend almonds until paste-like)

2 little squares of dark chocolate (Dairy free)

Preheat oven to 180 degrees C.

Core the pears, and put half a piece of dark chocolate as a wedge in the bottom.

Blend/process/bamix the dates and almond spread until a smooth paste forms (caramel). Fill the cored pear with caramel, and add remaining half of a piece of chocolate in the top of the pear. Repeat with the second pear.

Cover pears in alfoil and bake for 25 minutes.
