  • Summary

    These treats -- coated with caramel, bittersweet chocolate, and toasted almonds -- are a sophisticated alternative to caramel apples; they're best eaten the day they are made. You can buy Seckel pears at farmers' markets and some supermarkets. If you can't find them, any other small pears will also work.

    Ingredients

    • 1 1/2 cups blanched almonds
    • 10 twigs or wooden dowels
    • 10 Seckel pears, or other small variety pears, washed and stemmed
    • 1 cup sugar
    • 1/4 cup dark corn syrup
    • 1 cup heavy cream
    • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
    • 7 ounces best-quality bittersweet chocolate, chopped
    • 1 tablespoon shortening
