Chocolate Caramel Pears

I know this sounds like a strange dessert, I was looking for something different to serve for supper one night, and we had just picked some pears, so I thought why not do something with them. They turned out great and satisfied every craving you might ever have. They are super simple to make and look so fancy!

Instructions

  1. 1In a heavy saucepan, heat caramels and water over low heat just until caramels are melted. Remove from the heat; cool slightly. Cut a thin slice from the bottom of each pear so it sits flat. Dip pears halfway in caramel; turn to coat and allow excess to drip off. Dip in nuts and place on a greased baking sheet; refrigerate for 30 minutes or until coating is firm.
  1. 1In a heavy saucepan or microwave oven, melt chocolate chips with 1 teaspoon shortening; stir until smooth. In another saucepan, melt vanilla chips with remaining shortening; stir until smooth. Drizzle melted chips over pears and stems. Let stand until set. Yield: 6 servings.
