  • 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.

This recipe works like a dream! So simple and yet so elegant. I do recommend that the pears be well chilled before beginning, as this helps the chocolate to set quickly. Thank you, Ms. Stewart.
