Who made the rule that only apples can be dipped in caramel?
Caramel Dipped Pears are so much better!
These little personal sized Seckel Pears are the perfect treat for Halloween!
Sweet, juicy and delicious with caramel and chocolate all over them!
Decorate them any way you wish!
I almost went for orange chocolate dipped with faces to look like Jack-o-Lanterns!
But instead, I couldn’t stop drizzling chocolate all over them once I got going!
Not to mention I was feeling “ghostly” since the shape of the pear is like a ghost already!
But you can see how much fun these can be if you let your creative juices get flowing!
All you really need is Kraft Caramel Bits (I love the bits because you don’t have to spend a lifetime unwrapping those little cubes! Thank you Kraft!)
For 6 pears I would recommend 2 bags of bits, same will go for the Caramel Squares since either way they are 11ounce bags.
For the chocolate I am Merckens all the way.
I order all my Merckens chocolate from a company called Candyland Crafts located in my hometown of Somerville NJ
They ship worldwide so you may want to check them out.
They have every color under the sun! Plus tons of other cake decorating and candy making supplies!
You will LOVE what they have to offer I promise!
So I used Green, Orange, Super White & Dark Chocolate Merckens Coins for all my dipping and decorating
The sticks I inserted into each pear was a 6″ Lollipop stick and yep, Candyland has those too!
You can also find all of these items at Michael’s Crafts stores as they sell all of the Wilton brands
So that’s it really! It’s very simple to make these little treats for Halloween or any occasion. I’m thinking thanksgiving would be neat to have each place setting get their own little caramel dipped pear!
