Ingredients

  • 4 pears washed and stalks removed
  • 200 g white chocolate
  • 100 g dark chocolate

Instructions

  • Break up the white and dark chocolate and place into 2 separate heat proof bowls.
  • Place the dark chocolate bowl over a pan of barely simmering water (turning off the heat after a minute) and stir with a spoon until melted.
  • Place a sheet of baking paper on a board.
  • Dip the base of each pear into the dark chocolate to give an even coat.
  • Lift out and place on the baking paper (holding in place until it will stand upright, team work is good)!
  • Place the pears in the fridge for a few minutes until the chocolate has set.
  • Meanwhile melt the white chocolate over more hot water as before (careful not to overheat or texture will go grainy).
  • Once the dark chocolate has set remove the pears from fridge and insert a lolly stick into the base of each.
  • Then coat the top two thirds of the pear with the while chocolate by spooning over and turning (a wavy line at the base is the aim).
  • Lay the pears down on the baking paper and place back in the fridge to set.
  • Put the remaining dark chocolate back on the heat.
  • Once the white chocolate has set use the tip of a teaspoon handle to dab on 2 eyes (and a mouth if you like) and place back in the fridge until set.
  • Serve at your Halloween party or wrap in cellophane as a Halloween gift!
