I've noticed that after a rich Thanksgiving meal, I'm not ready for rich desserts . . . so that's why I'm adding dark chocolate dipped pears.
The combination of the light, sweet pear and smooth dark chocolate . . . is just that . . . light and smooth. I could easily enjoy one after a rich meal and not feel overwhelmed by another rich food, like pumpkin pie and cheesecake.
Don't get me wrong, I will also be enjoying pie (and truffles!!) . . . but it will be much later Thanksgiving evening (smile).
