This recipe is the epitome of a healthful sweet ending for a meal or party. Juicy pear wedges are dipped into bittersweet or semisweet chocolate and sprinkled with or dipped in chopped pistachios!


  1. Add chocolate chips to a 2-cup micro-wave safe glass measure and melt gently in the microwave on a HIGH setting for about 30 seconds. Microwave 10 seconds at a time, if needed, until chocolate is completely melted when stirred.
  2. Place chopped pistachios into a short glass. Line a jellyroll pan with waxed or parchment paper if refrigerating the pear wedges for an hour or until serving.
  3. Dip pear wedges, one at a time, partly into the melted chocolate, then partly into the chopped pistachios then place on the prepared jellyroll pan (if refrigerating). If serving immediately, dip the pear wedges into the chocolate then place on a serving plate and sprinkle the pistachios over the top.
