- 4 ounces dark chocolate (preferably at least 70 percent cacao), finely chopped
- 4 small pears, such as Forelle
Melt chocolate in a heatproof bowl set over simmering water, stirring until smooth. Let cool slightly.
Starting at bottom of each pear, use a teaspoon to remove core, leaving stem at top intact. Dip bottom three-quarters of each pear in chocolate. Transfer to a parchment-lined plate, and refrigerate until chocolate has set, at least 15 minutes (and up to 2 hours). Bring to room temperature before serving.
