Pear Surprise


Surprise! It’s pear surprise! Actually, it’s just pear halves with cream and chocolate sauce and nuts and ice cream. Surprise! Wrong. The real surprise is that a dessert, even easier to make than jelly and ice cream can taste so yummy. When people say the simple things in life are the ones that count, they really do mean it.

Closer look

Ice cream tastes good with fruit. Stat. Fruit tastes good with cream. Stat. Chocolate tastes good with nuts. Stat. I think you get the idea. This pudding could’ve and was probably made up by a child. So you need to keep with the theme and just shove it all into a tall sundae glass, and chuck some sauce on, letting it ooze and drip down the side. I bet you’re salivating now. I know I am.

Please note: This pudding has no exact quantities and you should serve in amounts that you feel are fitting for the appetites of your guests. Though, on average, one can of pears, should serve 2 people.

Makes: 4 glasses


2 x cans of pears in syrup (fruit juice works well too)
4 handfuls of chopped nuts; almonds, hazelnuts
Vanilla ice cream
Whipping/squirty cream
1 bar of chocolate


1. Drain the pears but keep the syrup in a sauce pan. Melt the chocolate and mix together until you have a chocolatety syrup.
2. Put a dollop of ice cream in the bottom of the glass, a pear on top and spoon over some syrup. Repeat. Squirt some cream and sprinkle onto the nut, before pouring a little more sauce on top. Do the same for the other glasses. Enjoy!
