Caramel Dipped Forelle Pears

Hello 2013! I’m starting things off with a sweet bang! I know, it’s the new year. We should all be eating salad and pushing 30 days juice cleanses. However, I’m really in no mood. I just want to sit down with a bowl of these pears and eat them for lunch. Is that too much to ask?

When I bought these little beauties I had no plan for them. I just thought they were adorable and therefor had to buy them. Am I the only one who does that? I’m a sucker for an adorable little piece of fruit. You should have seen all the citrus I almost bought today. Then I realized that I didn’t need a bag of key limes, a bag of blood oranges and a bag of meyer lemons. What is one girl supposed to do with all that citrus?

How did I get onto citrus when I was talking about pears?

Ok, back to the pears. They were adorable. I bought them. I had no plan. That is when I decided to just dip the bad boys in caramel, sprinkle it with a little raw sugar and see how it turned out. Awesome. The answer is awesome.

    I have two bags of meyer lemons on my table…I’m thinking some kind of lemon ice cream has to happen..stat. :)

    I love these caramel-dipped pears though! Too bad Meyers wouldn’t taste good dipped in caramel…otherwise I”d so do it.

    These are adorable! And I like how the sugar would add a little crunch.

    I know you’ve just done a million cocktails, but I bet those blood oranges would be amazing in something with a bit of kick…
