Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • 2 pears, preferably Red Bartlett
  • 2 oz white chocolate
  • 8 mini chocolate chips
Instructions
  1. Wash pears and wipe dry.
  2. Add enough water to a small pot pot to fill it ⅓ full. Bring to a soft boil and place a heat-safe bowl on top of the pot. Make sure the bottom of the pot is not touching the water. Place chopped chocolate in the bowl and allow to melt. Stir occasionally with a rubber spatula.
  3. Apply melted chocolate to one half of the pear in a motion that resembles mummy bandages. Leave space for eyes! Repeat with the other side of the fruit. Place on a cooling rack while you finish other pears.
  4. Cool in the refrigerator until you’re ready to serve, at least 30 minutes.
  5. Before serving, place pears sideways on a cutting board. Halve them lengthwise to get two “mummies”. Using a small spoon to scoop out seeds, core, and calyx (bottom of a pear). To attach the eyes, pierce the skin of a pear with the tip of a sharp knife and insert a mini chocolate chip, top down.
  6. Serve immediately.
Notes
Keep the bowl with melted chocolate on top of the pot to keep chocolate warm and prevent drying out while you decorate pears.
Mini silicone spatulas works best for the decorating task.
