Baked Chocolate Pear Delights

November’s in full swing, the leaves are falling from the trees and it’s time to turn on the oven and make some sweet delights to fill our homes with the lovely scent of home baking. These chocolate pear delights are extremely quick and simple to throw together. Perfect for when you need to whip up a quick dessert. As a variation, you can replace the pink peppercorns with a dusting of cinnamon or add candied ginger to the chocolate batter.

I developed this recipe for Cactus News magazine as part of their Food Heroes project, in which they showcase local producers whose products you can buy at Cactus. This recipe is using chocolate from fairtrade chocolate producer Tricentenaire, whose workshop employs adult workers with disabilities. You can read more on Jérôme Colson’s chocolate production here.

Also, the recipe is available in German and in French.
