recipe

These treats -- coated with caramel, bittersweet chocolate, and toasted almonds -- are a sophisticated alternative to caramel apples; they're best eaten the day they are made. You can buy Seckel pears at farmers' markets and some supermarkets. If you can't find them, any other small pears will also work.

recipe
