If you’ve ever had Poires Belle Hélène – the classic French dessert of poached pear and chocolate sauce, you’ll already know about amazing the combo of pear and chocolate.
And if you haven’t, do I have a treat for you!
It’s 2 ingredients.
And ready in seconds.
Perfect for those nights where you haven’t planned anything for dessert but feel the urge for a little ‘something something’ that’s a bit more exciting than your regular square of dark chocolate.
2-Ingredient Choc Hazelnut Pears
- 1 pear
- 2-3 tablespoons nutella
Slice pear in half lengthwise. Then slice into quarters and cut out the seeds. Slice each quarter into 2-3 slivers. So you have 9-12 slices of pear in total.
Spread a little nutella on the end of each slice. Enjoy!
Variations & Substitutions for 2-Ingredient Choc Hazelnut Pears
pantry-friendly – pears will keep in the fridge for months so it’s pretty much a pantry snack.
lower carb – use celery or carrot sticks instead of pear and replace nutella with peanut butter or almond butter.
crunchy – sprinkle over chopped roast nuts. Hazelnuts are particularly delicious.
nut-free – replace nutella with tahini or cream cheese or ricotta and a drizzle of honey.
different fruit / vegetables – apples, strawberries, raspberries, celery, carrots are all great! And for you weird people who think orange and chocolate go together (my Irishman agrees with you) – knock yourselves out with some fresh orange.
Waste Avoidance Strategy
pears – will keep for weeks (if not months) in the fridge.
nutella – keep it in the pantry.
No. Unfortunately the pear will brown.
