Description

This rich dessert looks impressive and comes together in 10 minutes. For a gooey version of this dessert, increase the milk to a cup and drizzle the chocolate mixture over the entire pear.

Ingredients

  • 4 whole Pears (I Used Bosc), Washed
  • 5 ounces, weight Dark Chocolate Chips
  • ¼ cups Milk Or Cream (I Used Almond Milk)
  • 6 ounces, weight Goat Cheese
  • ½ cups Granola

Preparation

Cut a tiny slice off of the bottom of each pear, so that it will stand up straight. Then slice each pear into 3 horizontal pieces cutting straight through the core.

In a heat-proof dish, microwave the chocolate chips and milk together. As noted above, you could increase the amount of milk (to 1 cup or so) to make it more of a sauce that you could drizzle over the whole dessert. Heat for 30 seconds, then stir and heat for additional 30 second increments until chocolate is melted. Once chocolate is melted, whisk together. If you find that the milk is making the chocolate seize up, try adding a bit more milk and microwaving it for another 30 seconds, then whisk again.

Spread a layer of goat cheese onto the top of each pear base. Sprinkle with a small handful of granola, and give it a dollop of chocolate. Place the second pear layer on top and repeat. Top with the last piece of pear!

These are prettiest if served in the hour or so after assembly. They do keep in the fridge for about 24 hours, but the chocolate will not be melted, of course, and the edges of the pear layers will look a tiny bit shriveled. However, I found that the chocolate was soft enough to be eaten after being refrigerated overnight, if you have leftovers!
