Truffle-Filled Pears

  • 2 ripe pears
  • 4 chocolate truffles -- I used raspberry-dark chocolate truffles
  • 8 T. chocolate liqueur

Cut each of the pears into two equal halves. Using a melon baller, remove the seeds and, using a paring knife, remove any remaining stems.

Set each pear half in a small microwavable serving dish and place a truffle upside down in the area where the seeds have been removed. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons of chocolate liqueur over each pear.

Microwave the pears at the high setting for 1-2 minutes or until the truffles are melted and slightly bubbly. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream, if desired.
